Children took to the water in a North Somerset village to learn vital survival skills, alongside raising money for charity.
The Puddle Ducks Bristol and Bath children’s swimming school hosted its annual charity pyjama week, which began on Monday.
It saw babies and children take part in a Puddle Ducks swimming lesson at Our Pool, in Wrington, where they completed a lesson plan focused on learning personal survival skills while wearing pyjamas.
This year’s pyjama week raised money for Cots For Tots, the charity which supports sick and premature babies at the special care baby unit at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol.
A statement from Puddle Ducks said: “Our pyjama week gives all our swimmers a regular session where they are exposed to what it might feel like to be in the water with their clothes on.
“We can provide them with the opportunity to see how it would feel to be in the water following an accidental submersion.”
