A swimming class for babies and toddlers has helped to raise thousands of pounds for a children’s charity.
Water Babies, which runs a class at the Ramada Hotel in Grantham, has held special classes with sponsored challenges for the youngsters to complete. The children in Grantham dressed up as pirates to add another dimension to their fundraising and classes run throughout the local area have so far raised almost £2,000 for Tommy’s, which funds research into pregnancy complications. The target is to raise £5,000.
The classes raise money for Tommy’s every two years and so far this year more than £200,000 has been raised.
Water Babies has also been awarded silver at the HSBC Franchisor of the Year Awards after being runner-up in the competition.
