A group of children from Puddle Ducks in Manchester have raised a whopping £6,074.49 for local causes over the last 6 years. This year, Puddle Ducks has raised £1,326.94 for Mummy’s Star during the charity swimming event.

Manchester based swim school, Puddle Ducks, hosts a charity event each year, in which children raise money for a local cause by learning water safety and survival skills, dressed in their favourite pyjamas. This year the pyjama swim party was held at Aqua Nurture on Knott Lane, Hyde and Mummy’s Star is Puddle Ducks’ chosen charity.

The funds raised will go towards supporting women diagnosed with any cancer during pregnancy or within a year of giving birth. Mummy’s Star helps families to meet others in a similar position, offer small grants to relieve some financial burden, give support to partners and the wider family and promote awareness and support research.

Mummy’s Star is the only charity across the UK and Ireland set up to support women and their families affected by cancer during pregnancy or 12 months after giving birth.

Suzanne Horton from Puddle Ducks, said, “We’re so proud of all the children, past and present, who have taken part in our charity pyjama event and helped us to raise so much money for our chosen charities. They all come eager to learn and ready to experience swimming in their pyjamas. We especially love it when the parents get involved too! Even after 6 years, this is still one of our biggest highlights of the year.” “Here at Puddle Ducks we want every child to love swimming, respect the water and swim beautifully. That’s why we make sure our classes are fun and sociable for both parents and children. Our swimming programmes also ensure that children are taught vital safety and survival skills, which could save their lives should they ever find themselves in danger in the water.”

Puddle Ducks provides innovative swimming classes for babies, toddlers and children. Teachers focus on creating a nurturing environment, which supports independent swimming for children of all abilities.
