Visitor Giving

We are delighted to announce our exciting new fundraising initiative – Visitor Giving,  which may be familiar to you if you have visited places such as the Lake District, Norfolk Broads and Loch Lomond where it is already in successful operation. 

Visitor Giving connects people with places close to their hearts by enabling them to contribute in a positive and meaningful way. It makes it really easy for the thousands of visitors and locals alike who eat, drink, stay and spend money in Bude to contribute relatively small sums, which collectively add up to something really quite significant and enables them to Visit Give Protect.

FoBSP is delighted to be a member of this nationally-recognised scheme and we are very optimistic about its potential to provide a much-needed sustainable fundraising stream that will help keep Bude Sea Pool open, FREE and safe for everyone to enjoy now and for future generations to come.

Please help spread the word by encouraging friends and family visiting the area to support our Visitor Giving partners below.
