It's almost time again for our annual fundraising Pyjama party!! This year it will be week commencing the 7th of November! PJ week teaches our little ones (and their parents) the dangers of water and what to do if they get into trouble in water. For a whole week our little Puddle Ducks wear their PJs to their swimming lesson which is lots of fun for everybody too!
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, we do all of this whilst ensuring the children have lots of fun.
Last year we raised £2829.22 which was split equally between Sunshine and Smiles - Leeds Down Syndrome Network and Star Bereavement Wakefield.
We have had 11 charity nominations and voting is underway on our Facebook page, please visit https://www.facebook.com/PuddleDucksWakefield/ and just pop a like onto the charity you would like us to raise money for this year. The post is pinned to the top so you can find it easily.
Thank you in advance :-) x
