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 (14th - 20th October this year), our swimmers raised 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.
This year we once again chose Chestnut Tree House Hospice to be our charity, and we are delighted to announce that we managed to raise £1,312 for this very worthy cause. This brings our total amount raised for Chestnut Tree House over the years to over £5,000, and is testament to the kindness and generosity of our customers.
Thanks to all our swimmers and parents for their fundraising efforts – we know every single penny is very much appreciated by the team and families who use the hospice.
