In January, STA launched a new year-long charity campaign called CommUNITY STArters, which is directly aimed at supporting not-for-profit organisations or groups; to help them start or boost a community-based grassroots swimming / water safety / aquatics related project.
As part of this campaign, each month in 2024, one organisation / group / project will be chosen to receive a £1000 charity start-up grant from STA, and we are delighted to confirm that the recipient of the first award is Jubilee Park Woodhall Spa Ltd (JPWS) who are based in Lincolnshire.
Ali Beckman, STA’s President said: “The reason we created CommUNITY STArters was to help not-for-profits like Jubilee Park make a difference in their respective communities, and their application to support local families who cannot afford vital learn-to-swim and water safety lessons for their children is a fantastic example of this.”
“STA’s CommUNITY STArters funding will be used to provide free swimming and water safety lessons at Jubilee Park, which could help more than 1000 children be safer around water this summer. This project fits perfectly with STA’s charity objective of “preserving human life by the teaching of swimming, lifesaving and survival techniques”, and we look forward to seeing how the funding will make a difference in their community over the coming months,” confirmed Ali.
