This is the third year that Puddle Ducks West Kent and East Sussex has supported KalliKids* Sponsored Child campaign. This year’s Sponsored Child is Lottie who has joined one of our Kickers classes at Freedom Fitness in Maidstone.
Below Lottie’s mum tells us a bit about why she applied and how Lottie has settled into her Puddle Ducks swimming lessons.
“I’m Emma and I’m a full-time mum to my two year old daughter Lottie. I applied for the Kallikids Sponsored Child place as Lottie was a very late walker and swimming was recommended by her physiotherapist to help strengthen her legs. Since swimming with Puddle Ducks she is walking and is going from strength to strength.
Lottie and I very much enjoy coming to the swimming lessons. [Lottie’s teacher] Jill makes the lessons fun and goes at each child’s pace. Lottie is gradually getting more confident at going under water and has started to do some good ‘reaching’ and ‘kicking’.
I am grateful to Kallikids*/Puddle Ducks for giving Lottie this wonderful opportunity.”
* Unfortunately, in the period since Lottie joined Puddle Ducks as a Sponsored Child, KalliKids has ceased trading. However we’re pleased to say that Lottie’s place with Puddle Ducks is secure and she will continue her swimming journey with us until July 2018 - we’ll keep you updated on how she’s getting on!
