A swimming team from Cheshire, Puddle Ducks, has raised a huge amount of money for a children’s charity.
Puddle Ducks Mid Cheshire has raised over £1,000 for charity Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) after completing its annual charity swim.
To make the feat even more impressive, the swimmers do it all in their pyjamas.
It is part of the PJ week, which raises awareness and money for different charities and CAFT benefitted massively from the effort.
Helping the terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children, the charity is based in a 17th century farmhouse and gives them a chance to play, laugh and be children.
Rachel Bateson, franchise manager of Puddle Ducks Mid Cheshire, commented: “PJ Week is great fun and we are so glad that we have been able to support CAFT.
“It is a great charity which was chosen by our little swimmers.
“Swimming in pyjamas shows our swimmers that they will feel heavier, but that they are still be able to do the important lifesaving manoeuvres like kicking to the surface and reaching for safety.”
Puddle Ducks swim at at Delamere Forest School, DW Fitness Macclesfield, DW Fitness Warrington, Holiday Inn Runcorn, Sandbach Boys School, Seashell Trust Hydro Pool, Seashell Trust Main Pool and Weaverham Pool.
