BABIES and toddlers have made a splash to raise money for an infants’ charity.
Youngsters have taken part in fun challenges including swimming through a hoop and gathering floating balls as part of a Portsmouth Water Babies fundraiser for the charity Tommy’s, which does research into stillbirth, premature birth and miscarriage.
Portsmouth Water Babies franchisee Caroline Braund said the ‘Splashathon’ event had helped to raise more than £13,000. She said: ‘Splashathon helps to raise funds for a really important cause, as well as being a lot of fun for everyone involved.’
The Splashathon events took place at pools including at the Mary Rose School in Southsea.
Tommy’s chief executive Jane Brewin said: ‘Splashathon has become such a fixture in our calendar and it’s always great to hear how much fun everyone has.
‘Its success is down to Water Babies and its clients throwing their weight behind it and showing a real passion for our cause.’
