A group of children from Puddle Ducks swimming classes wore pyjamas to fundraise for a charity that helps one of their swimmers.

Every autumn the school hold a week long Charity Pyjama event where children raise money for a chosen charity.

The group raised £851 for Reach, a charity which aims to support children with upper limb differences, like Puddle Ducks member Kitty.

Jenny Brown, from Puddle Ducks, said: “We were delighted to fundraise for Reach, they do fantastic work, supporting children across the UK including one of our own little swimmers, Kitty who doesn’t let an upper limb disability prevent her from learning to swim.

“We want to thank all of the children for joining us this week and for all of their great work in raising £851.”

Puddle Ducks run classes across Calderdale, including DW Fitness in Halifax.
