This October, our little swimmers can get involved and raise money by learning water safety and survival skills, dressed in their favourite pyjamas. This year we have chosen to raise money for the amazing Captain Chaos Challenges, in memory of Jack who was one of our little Puddle Ducks. The money raised from this fantastic event will be split equally between two wonderful charities; Birmingham Children's Hospital and The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust.
Every year for one week, Puddle Ducks Worcestershire organises the Pyjama (PJ) Week and invites all of its little swimmers and parents to swap their swimming costumes for their pyjamas. The children are encouraged to collect sponsors and raise money for the chosen charities, as well learning water safety and survival skills whilst swimming in their clothes.
This year our Charity PJ Week will take place from 14th - 20th October and we’ve decided to support Captain Chaos Challenges in raising money for Birmingham Children's Hospital and The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust because they each have close ties with our Puddle Ducks Worcestershire team.
Captain Chaos Challenges, is a charity near to our hearts here at Puddle Ducks Worcestershire as it was set up by the family of one of our little Puddle Ducks Jack who sadly died from a rare form of Leukaemia on 23rd September 2018 aged just three and a half. To read more about Jack's story please visit Captain Chaos Challenges.
“We’re very proud of all of our little swimmers who are taking part in this year’s charity pyjama event and helping us to raise funds and awareness for our chosen charities. All the children love the experience of swimming in their clothes and at the same time have the opportunity to learn some key safety skills and of course it’s a wonderful way for us to support 2 charities that have real personal links to our Puddle Ducks Worcestershire team. We wish super good luck to all of our little swimmers and our Puddle Ducks team.” Gary Horton, owner Puddle Ducks Worcestershire.
So bring your favourite pyjamas and be ready to make a big splash to support Captain Chaos Challenges as we raise money for Birmingham Children's Hospital and The Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust! 💦
