KIRKCUDBRIGHT swimming pool has received a financial boost from TalkTalk, the home phone, broadband and mobile provider.

The charity run organisation will use the funding to help with on-going running costs and to buy new equipment for the expansion of the gym.

Alongside the support of the swimming pool, TalkTalk is investing £50,000 in technology to bring best value broadband offers to Kirkcudbright. TalkTalk is expanding its Next Generation Network at the local telephone exchange which will give customers access to fast, reliable broadband services for all of the family’s needs.

Kirkcudbright swimming pool opened in 1997 and provides locals with a fantastic pool which is used for swimming and aquacise classes as well as swimming lessons for all levels. There is also a gym at the centre.

Colin Wyper, Manager of Kirkcudbright swimming pool says:

“As we are a charity we work hard to raise funds to help keep the facilities at Kirkcudbright swimming pool open for the local community to use. The donation from TalkTalk is absolutely fantastic and we are very grateful for their help and support. ”

Tristia Clarke, Commercial Director at TalkTalk says:

“Investing in the local area allows us to bring our great value offers to even more families in Kirkcudbright and Bombie and we are proud to be supporting Kirkcudbright swimming pool. They are in the heart of the community and we are delighted our donation will go towards keeping the pool open and on new equipment”.

Expanding its Next Generation Network allows TalkTalk to offer its best value for money packages to even more of the UK. With maximum speeds of up to 24 Meg, prices for broadband and phone packages start from as little as £6.50 plus line rental and include unlimited evening and weekend calls.
