Hydro Appeal

‘Friends of Avalon PTA’ are fundraising to create a Hydrotherapy Pool at the school. We have already raised 85% of the £1.08 million needed: an extraordinary £930,000

We now need the final £155,000 allowing us to begin building the pool, so all efforts are focussed on fundraising initiatives to reach our target.

Our pupils need this facility, as do many others in our wider rural community: some young people with life-limiting conditions simply don’t have time to wait. We need to find the remaining funds to make it happen!

The campaign needs your support to reach its target: every donation now brings this facility closer, for children and adults in need. Please see ‘How you can help’ to find out more.


The Hydrotherapy Pool will be built within the school grounds to the designs below, which reflect the buildings in the area. The design has been carefully planned to provide an excellent facility when built, but also to provide the opportunity for further development in the future. As built, the designs below provide everything required to meet the needs of pupils and visiting groups:

  • A pool to meet Sport England’s guidance
  • Three changing cubicles and three large showers
  • One accessible bathroom and changing room
  •  A small group changing room 


We need a final £155,000 to reach our build target. No small feat, but with over £930,000 in donations to date we know it is possible.

Individuals: Donations will be so gratefully received online via the link to Givey. We can accept cheques payable to ‘Friends of Avalon PTA’ or cash at school, as well (Avalon School, Brooks Road, Street, Somerset BA16 0PS)

Companies: Perhaps you could set your team a fundraising challenge? Corporate donations will attract tax relief, and we’d be delighted to acknowledge your support somewhere permanent.

Any questions? Alison Davies, the school’s Support Services Manager, can be reached on 01458-443081
