Lilypad Baby Swimmers helps to raise funds for the volunteers of the RNLI

Lilypad Baby are jumping in with both feet to hold a ‘Splash-a-thon’ with their swimmers from Monday 1st – Friday 5th May. Swimmers will have fun splashing around in the pool (based in Thurlstone, South Yorkshire) covering key water confidence skills. The older Swim Stars will also have the opportunity to learn some important water safety skills.

Lilypad Baby founder, Anna Bushell explains further, “The RNLI is such an important organisation who’s volunteers put their own lives at risk, when we need them most. It doesn’t matter how good a swimmer you are, the sea can be a dangerous place and we all hope that we never need the assistance of the RNLI, but when we do, it’s important that they have the right kit to do their job properly. A full kit costs over £1500 per volunteer and it’s only through the generous donations of the public that the RNLI can raise the cash needed. Our little swimmers will have a fun time, splashing around learning the key elements of water safety and at the same time raising money for this worthy charity.”

Lilypad Baby swimmers will have their own sponsorship forms to pass amongst family and friends and there will be a collection tin during the week at lessons in the hope that the much needed funds can be raised for the RNLI.
