Burnham Swimming Pool hosts annual Tommy’s Splashathon
Burnham-On-Sea Pool and Tommy’s, the baby charity, are inviting tots to take the plunge on Friday June 24 by taking part in the annual Tommy’s Splashathon.
The popular event, taking place between 10.30am – 12.00pm at Burnham Pool, involves babies, toddlers and young children raising money by simply splashing a width or length of the swimming pool, and having fun to help vital research into premature birth, stillbirth and miscarriage.
Each splasher will receive their own free Huggies swim nappy so they can join in the fun in the water, along with a certificate to display their proud achievement.
Jane Brewin, Chief Executive of Tommy’s, said: “This event is great fun for the youngsters and the money raised will support Tommy’s many research projects aimed at ending the heartache so many parents suffer when their precious baby dies during pregnancy or at birth.”
“For the splashathon, we’re inviting toddlers to join in and take up this challenge – it’s absolutely fantastic that they can offer Tommy’s such generous support.”
