Turtle Tots, the award-winning baby and infant swim specialists, will be making a splash all over the country this October to raise vital funds and awareness for Meningitis Now by hosting fun ‘Splash Now’ charity fundraiser activities in all of their swimming lessons.
In an exclusive partnership with Meningitis Now, Turtle Tots will host the ‘Splash Now’ charity fundraiser events in lessons in October 2021.
This fun event has been designed by Turtle Tots to encourage babies and toddlers to splish, splash, splosh, and raise funds for Meningitis Now. The format will involve a teacher-led baby lesson sponsorship activity and a toddler lesson sponsorship activity, which will take place at the end of each lesson.
Caroline Sparks, the co-founder of Turtle Tots, says: “Charity events are very important to the ethos of Turtle Tots, and every year we really enjoy hosting fun events that all our little Turtles and parents can get involved with. Our parents love it too, and are always supportive of our charity events – with their continued support we are hoping to raise £25,000 this year for Meningitis Now with ‘Splash Now’.”
“With our focus being on baby and infant swimming too, Meningitis Now is a charity very dear to our and all our teachers’ hearts, and we were delighted when they asked if we could host this event in partnership with them. Charities have suffered hard through the pandemic, so we are really looking forward to making a splash, bringing on the smiles and raising much-needed funds for Meningitis Now,” added Caroline.
Meningitis Now chief executive Tom Nutt said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Turtle Tots and we are really grateful for their support.
“This partnership will help us raise lifesaving awareness of the signs and symptoms of meningitis with the families of babies and toddlers, the group most at risk of the disease, as well as raising vital funds to support all those fighting back from it.
“With the pandemic having made such a big impact on our work, support from partnerships like this has never been more important as we look to defeat meningitis in the UK within a generation.”
