Funding Needed For Planned Swimming Pool Facility

Funding Needed For Planned Swimming Pool Facility.  A Costa Del Sol swimming instructor is planning to launch a community swimming facility.

Funding Needed For Planned Swimming Pool Facility

A swimming instructor in Benalmadena is seeking funding for an ambitious new community swimming pool project.  Kelci O’Keeffe says that currently the swimming facilities on the Costa Del Sol are not suitable for everyone.  “I recognise our community’s lack of a family-friendly, inclusive facility that makes every part of the swimming experience fun. Our area needs an indoor swimming pool that is welcoming from the moment you walk in the door, suitable for all ages and abilities with year-round swimming lessons and public access.”

Architect’s sketch shows how the planned pool could look.

Kelci has identified a site near the Las Lagunas area in Fuengirola, and is working with a local architect to create a swimming facility which will meet the needs of the local community.  The new centre will feature changing rooms with baby changing tables, disabled access, and the pool will have a constantly regulated temperature.

Kelci is planning a pool facility suitable for the local community.

Swimming is a skill which Kelci believes everyone living in this coastal area should have. She says “I firmly believe that being able to swim competently is an important life skill everyone should have. Swimming has many positives, such as building self-esteem.  Swimming can also improve health and general well-being.”

Funding is now being sought for the planned swimming pool.  Contributions are possible through a Go Fund Me page.
