15 Jun Jungle Charity Swim Week – 4th July to 10th July 2016
Join us to Swim the Amazon for local charities this summer
Baby Paddlers would like to invite you to join us in a sponsored swim across the Amazon for charity.
Our exciting Jungle themed swim will be taking part in your child’s lesson between 4-10 July. Every Paddler will take part by swimming 27 meters in their class, and with a combined total of all our swimmers we will be able to swim across the AMAZON! What an amazing achievement that would be.
We are raising money for some wonderful local charities, please see below for all the details on them. Please download your sponsorship form using the button below. Just think if every child raises just £10 then we would have a fantastic £5000 to give to our charities. WOW!
We can’t wait for our event, and hope you are excited to see what our teachers have in store for your little jaguars and monkeys. If you have any questions then please drop an email to [email protected]
We are raising money for some fantastic local charities
Scarf is a parent-led charity, based in the New Forest, Hampshire. They organise regular term-time and holiday activities for young people with special needs and their families. The children that Scarf works with have a broad range of disabilities and special needs including Down’s Syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy and learning difficulties.
Their approach is not just to meet the needs of the disabled child, but also to recognise the impact on the whole family, all of whom need fun and support.
