Having opened in 1928 and being one of only 11 of its kind in England, Newcastle City Pool and Turkish Baths closed in 2013 as a consequence of the city council's budget cuts.
Since its closure, the reopened Newcastle Turkish Baths Group has claimed that it gives distinctive features to the city and is fighting to save it.
Besides a total of 1,100 signatures, a grant of 10,000 pounds was provided by The Social Investment Business, which will be used to assess the current state of the building and determine what work needs to be done to reopen the Turkish baths.
Stating they are optimistic that they can find a solution to enable the Newcastle Turkish baths to reopen, Teresa Marshall, group spokeswoman, said: "We are willing to do everything to reopen this much-loved facility both for residents and visitors to Newcastle because the Newcastle Turkish Baths are one of only a few remaining original Turkish baths in the country. Thus, we are calling for any organizations that may have an interest in helping to re-open the Turkish baths, and we can look at possible collaborations."
