An anonymous donor is speeding the fundraising for a major refurbishment of Manchester's communal mikveh.
The benefactor has offered to match contributions from community members for the £75,000 still required.
Around £250,000 has already been raised towards work on bathrooms, rewiring, roof repairs and updating fire safety equipment at the mikveh in Tetlow Lane, Salford. The seven pool, 12 bathroom complex dates back to the 1950s.
