This is an intensive course and includes a lifeguard training manual and training on using a defibrillator.

Volunteering and Fundraising Initiatives

Volunteers (i-Jbvgci.jpg)

If you have some spare time why not become one of our volunteers, we need help with general duties to get the lido ready to open every year or with specialist events such as Turning Back Time or our annual sporting events:

The Cheltenham Triathlon raising funds for the lido and LINC; our children's aquathlon raising funds for The Pied Piper Appeal and the lido and The Devil's Aquathlon raising funds for Macmillan and the lido. The GE Aviation Aquathlon raises funds solely for the lido.  We also require more specialist skills such as assisting with Heritage Talks and Tours.

If you have a little time to offer call or email us now on 01242 524430 or swim@sandfordparkslido.org.uk.

If you have a great idea for your own personal challenge why not design your own fundraising page via www.justgiving.com/spl/raisemoney and raise money for the lido at the same time!
