Many local businesses support Bude Sea Pool simply to do just that, they ‘support’ it. The Pool couldn’t be where it is at without such a community. In a small reciprocal community such as Bude, promoting each other also brings more trade to the economy, encouraging people to visit and to buy locally.
By supporting Friends of Bude Sea Pool, local businesses have the opportunity to advertise to FoBSP’s membership, those visiting, and much wider. The Charity’s social media audience is ever-growing and now tops 20,000 followers, between Facebook and Instagram alone.
Each autumn, Fay, our Sales Manager, goes to local businesses to offer if they might like to join or renew on this scheme that runs annually from April each year. Sponsors confirm by January, and provide Fay with advertisements and listings that go into the annual handbook that is published each Spring. This is then sent to all Friends. In addition, social media posts for each business are scheduled alphabetically throughout the year.
