Fundraising & Volunteering
The Puffin Pool is a Public Limited Company - SC133596 (Scotland) and Registered Charity SCO17786. After raising the funds to build the Puffin Pool we have continued to raise funds to maintain and improve the Pool and also subsidise the entry charge.
Apart from small grants from NHS Highland and The Highland Council, our main income comes from user charges and our own fundraising. We are lucky to have good support from a large number of sources including donations and legacies from Pool users and their friends and families, local businesses, as well as from local fundraising events like the Highland Cross, Rotary Street Fair, and an annual Fun Run. Our major fundraising comes from our popular and successful Puffin Pool Shop in Tulloch Street.
As the Pool celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2016 we are commencing fundraising to mark the occasion. As well as normal maintenance and replacement of equipment, a major overhaul of the Pool plant is anticipated and we are also looking to fund a walkway to the Puffin Pool from the car park and from the Highland Rheumatology Unit to make access more comfortable for users in the cold winter months.
If you would like to make a contribution you can do so by making a donation or volunteering to help in the shop or at events. If you would like to help please contact us.
