Children from swimming groups across North Somerset made a splash when they raised more than £2,500 for charity.
Little swimmers from the Puddle Ducks swimming school, which holds classes at The Campus in Locking Castle, theclub and spa at DoubleTree by Hilton, in Congresbury, and Our Pool in Wrington, took to the water in their pyjamas to raise some £2,509 for Cots For Tots.
The school’s annual pyjama week teaches children vital water survival skills while supporting Cots For Tots, which raises money for sick and premature babies at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol.
Puddle Ducks spokesman Sarah Austin said: “Our charity pyjama week is a great way of teaching our students important lifesaving skills in a fun and relaxed environment, while raising money for a great local cause.”
“We were delighted to fundraise for Cots for Tots, which does fantastic work, and we will continue to support the charity.”
