Puddle Ducks splash the cash for charity during pyjama week

LITTLE ducklings have been playing their part in filling the charity buckets for a cancer support charity at the end of October, as part of their twice-annual Charity Pyjama Week.

Babies and toddlers in Tunbridge Wells and Crowborough swimming classes joined other Puddle Ducks classes across West Kent and East Sussex splashing the cash donations, to raise a total of £1,207 for the Wolo Foundation.

The charity offers practical day-to-day support to families in Sussex living with cancer, from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.

Every year, Puddle Ducks schools across the UK get its little swimmers go into the water wearing their pyjamas, which gives children a chance to experience swimming while clothed.

Clive Relf, co-owner of Puddle Ducks West Kent and East Sussex said: “It is so important for children to learn about water safety and survival techniques in the water. Our Pyjama Week helps children to experience how it feels to be submerged in water fully-clothed, and what actions they would take to reach safety.

He added: “Everybody had a great time. They really loved the fundraising element of the week, knowing they were supporting families who are local to us.

“We have been blown away by the generosity of our little swimmers, their family and friends for providing donations and we want to say a big thank you.”
