ur Charity Pyjama Week takes place from Oct 14th to Oct 20th
What to wear for Pyjama Week:
- Floaties, Splashers & Kickers: sleepsuits or short or long sleeved pyjamas. Don't forget to wear your usual double swim nappies underneath
- Little Dippers & Dippers: short or long sleeved pyjamas. Don't forget to wear your usual double swim nappies underneath or swimwear if potty trained
- Dabblers: short sleeved pyjamas
- All parents/carers involved in pre-school lessons should wear pyjamas.
A top tip is to bring a plastic carrier bag for all the wet pyjamas as they make bags and towels very wet.
What our Pyjama Week teaches:
- If accidents happen, often it's when fully clothed. We strongly believe 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
- We do all of this while making sure your child has lots of fun!
Who are we raising money and taking donations for?
Being diagnosed, or living with a heart or circulatory condition can be overwhelming. So can finding out you're at risk of developing a condition. But The British Heart Foundation are here to help.
They fund over £100 million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them. Heart diseases. Stroke. Vascular dementia. Diabetes. They're all connected, and they're all under The British Heart Foundation's microscope.
Research has given us machines that can restart hearts, the ability to fix arteries in tiny babies, the power to give someone a heart they weren’t born with, and so much more.
But heart and circulatory diseases still kill 1 in 4 in the UK, they cause heartbreak on every street. And that’s why the British Heart Foubndation's work is as urgent and vital as ever.
Their research, is the promise to protect the people we love. Our parents. Our brothers. Our sisters. Our grandparents. Our closest friends.
Research is who they are. The promise of future preventions, treatments and cures.
People’s donations have got us this far. Every breakthrough they’ve made, funded by people like you.
