Community Chest

Bids are starting to arrive for 2018 process. It is anticipated that the final decision by club members will take place at the May meeting.

This initiative is intended to prompt local charities to bid for funds against a community pot within the overall charity account 

Charities are asked to submit bids of no more than 500 words as to how they would use 350, 250 or 150.

Bids are then reviewed by the directors of the club and three chosen for onward decision by club members. Final voting takes place after 10 minute presentations by the bidders.

One of the successful bidders was 'Eastleigh Disability Swimming' which used the money to promote the group with a new display. This has brought many comments from other users of the pool and, hopefully, more members to have exclusive use of the facility.
