A sponsorship star!

Every so often Friends of Moseley Road Baths get someone who comes along and blows our minds.  It may be someone who tells us about bits of the history of the Baths that we knew nothing about.  It may be someone who gives us pages of petitions out of the blue.  Or, like Philip, it may be someone who lends their talents and charisma to raising money for the building.

On 4th December Philip Morris swam half a mile in Moseley Road Baths, in under half an hour, wearing Edwardian swimming costume.  What’s even more amazing is that the 82 year old athlete has now raised over £350 towards improving changing facilities at the Baths.  We anticipate that the money will be used to provide communal changing space for schools.  We’ll be keeping you posted on our progress with that.

Well done Philip, thanks so much for your energy, enthusiasm and hard work!
