Sponsor A Tile: Make Your Mark on Govanhill Baths!

To make Govanhill Baths a resource for everyone to enjoy, we are raising money to help provide vital equipment enabling equal access and facilities for all.

We are incredibly grateful to all of you who have already supported us but we need a little more help to make our baths the brilliant and beautiful building we all deserve.

For a minimum donation of £25 you can sponsor a tile that will be part of a permanent mural on public display in our beloved baths.

Each handmade tile will be 5cm by 5cm and engraved with a name of your choosing (one name per tile). You can sponsor a tile for yourself or your pet (just enter your pet’s name AND your surname please), or as a unique gift for a friend or family member. The tiles will also make a touching memorial for someone you have lost. If you want to sponsor more than one tile, we will make sure they are together side by side.

Your tile will also be part of an online mural on our website.

If sponsoring as a gift, commemorative certificates are also available for you to give to the recipient for them to keep.

Please note:

One name per tile, maximum 30 characters per tile, including spaces and titles.

Let us know in the “order notes” at checkout if you will be collecting. Please call in advance to make sure your certificate has been processed and the office will be staffed when you arrive: 0141 433 2999. 

There will be a delay processing Sponsorships over the festive period and into early January 2022. Any certificates that are to be posted may not arrive until the end of January. 

Conditions

We ask that any name a sponsor wants to be engraved on a tile belongs to a friend, family member or acquaintance of the sponsor. Please do not use a name of a person known to the public to be engraved, for example an actor, politician, sportsperson and so forth. We reserve the right to refuse to engrave a name if we feel it may cause offence, damage our reputation, or would not be fitting or appropriate for the mural. If you do not want to provide an alternative name, we will give you a full refund of your donation.

We will work towards having the mural completed for the public opening of Govanhill Baths. However, factors out with our control may cause a delay.

Should a tile be damaged, we will replace it as speedily as we can at no cost to you.
