Each year we hold a Charity Pyjama Week. The chosen charity (with the help of our customers!) for 2019 was the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
The Air Ambulance is one of the UK's leading Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) charities and operates throughout Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire meaning this could be a lifesaving resource for all of our customers.
The state of the art helicopter and highly-skilled Pilots, Paramedics and Doctors give some of the most critically ill and injured people their very best chance of survival in what is often their greatest hour of need! At a time when every second counts, the iconic yellow helicopter can really mean the difference between life and death.
The charity is not part of the NHS nor it is it funded by the government so the fundraising efforts of our little swimmers will help the charity to continue operating and saving the lives of those who need it.
It’s all about water safety! As well as adding an element of fun to lessons, our Pyjama Parties are a vital element of our teaching. If accidents happen, often it’s when fully clothed. We strongly believe that it’s our duty to ensure that our swimmers know what it feels like to be in water while wearing clothes. Even just this short experience will help them to realise that even though they feel heavier, they can still do those all-important reactions of kicking to the surface, turning and reaching for the side. And the best bit is, they do all of this whilst ensuring the children have lots of fun.
In 2019 our swimmers raised an absolutely fantastic £3962.04.
