Friends of Jubilee Pool Appeal

During the major storms of February 2014 the Jubilee Pool in Penzance suffered extensive damage. The pool is currently closed due to this damage.

A major grant from Coastal Communities Fund was awarded to Jubilee Pool in August 2014.

However, The Friends of Jubilee Pool are continuing to fundraise to reach a target of £160,000 as match funding to restore the pool to its former glory and to contribute to the longer term future of the pool. You can help them reach this goal by donating or organising a fund raising event.

The ‘Save our Lido’ campaign will contribute to the longer term future of the pool, as an important local amenity for locals and visitors alike.

If you love the Jubilee Pool, please help reach this goal by joining the Friends, donating to their campaign, or arranging a fundraising event- or all three!

All the money raised will go towards restoring and keeping the pool open. The aim is simple, to ensure Jubilee Pool survives and is never put at risk of closure again. You can also donate online by visiting their website
