THE Bourne Outdoor Pool has received a much needed boost thanks to Sainsbury’s handing over a cheque for £1,700 on Friday.
The presentation marked the end of the supermarket supporting the Bourne Outdoor Pool as its chosen charity.
The outdoor pool, on the Abbey Lawn, has had a difficult year, with the poor weather severely hitting the average footfall at the swimming pool.
Chairman of the Bourne Outdoor Pool Trustees Mandy Delaine-Smith said: “It was hoped that we could use this money from Sainsbury’s to renovate the floor of the pool but now it will just help to keep the pool open this season which is the most important thing.
“I want to give a big thank you for all the fantastic help and support by the staff at Sainsbury’s.
“Every bit of fundraising helps.”
