Puddle Ducks' franchise network pulls together for PJ Week


Children across the nation donned their pyjamas and took the plunge recently, taking part in baby and child swim school, Puddle Ducks’ Pyjama Week.

The event, saw Puddle Ducks’ franchisees across England, Wales and Scotland take part in the initiative, teaching little swimmers and their families vital swimming techniques, especially how it would feel if they ever found themselves in water fully clothed.

It is often the favourite lesson for many of the swim franchises little swimmers, with the fun exercises helping children to remember key skills for staying safe in the water.

Jo Stone, co-founder of Puddle Ducks commented: “Our Pyjama Weeks across the UK help children to experience how it feels to be submerged in water fully clothed, and what actions they would take to reach safety. It’s also a great opportunity for our franchise offices to come together and get involved in a network wide campaign”.

Whilst some of the network chose to support charities close to their hearts or local to them, the majority of the network once again supported Children’s Hospital Pyjamas. The UK based charity collects donations of brand-new pyjamas, from the public, which are then donated to Hospitals, Hospices, School Hospital Teams and Women’s refuges up and down the country. These are then given to poorly or less fortunate children who are inpatients. This year the swim school collected 1400 pairs of pyjamas and raised an amazing £16,070 for the charity, thanks to the fundraising efforts of the network and their customers.

A Children’s Hospital Pyjamas spokesperson said, “Children’s Hospital Pyjamas are super thankful for the support of our charity partner ‘Puddle Ducks’ for yet another year.  With the help of Puddle Ducks and their lovely families we not only increased the number of establishments on our register, but they also helped us to recruit more coordinators in areas that we did not have any. Partnerships like this massively help charities like ours and ultimately help us to reach out and support more children. Thank you, Puddle Ducks, for being amazing and helping us to create smiles”.
