Charity Pyjama Week 2017

Charity Pyjama Week aims to beat £50k.

Three times a year we hold a Pyjama Week, where our swimmers attend lessons in their pyjamas and learn vital lifesaving and personal survival skills, and in our autumn Pyjama Week (16th - 22nd October this year), our swimmers raise money for charity.

Wearing pyjamas during swimming lessons is about more than just having fun. Most accidents will happen while your child is fully clothed, so Pyjama Week will give a great indication of what this will feel like. It will help them realise that they will feel heavier but they will still be able to do the important life-saving manoeuvres like kicking to the surface and reaching for the side.

Each local team chooses a charity close to their hearts, and last year our swimmers managed to raise more than £50,000, taking our total over to two years to a whopping £105,000. This year we’d love to beat last year’s total, and these are the charities that we will be raising money for:
