Celebration Evening

On Thursday 23rd February, Sparkle held their 2nd swim celebration evening. This event allows families the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the children who attend swim lessons here at the centre. We had a fantastic turn out from family members and everybody enjoyed watching the children collect their well earned certificates from our Sparkle Swim Instructors. Also, on the evening we had representatives from Morrisons supermarket who confirmed they are very kindly sponsoring 4 swim volunteers to train for their level 1 swim teacher award. This is fabulous news because, once qualified, we will have more resource available, to use during our swim sessions. After the certificate presentation, families were invited to stay for soft drinks and cakes and this offered everybody the opportunity to socialise and take photographs.

Izzy comes along to weekly lessons and she said: “Swimming is fun because we play and have fun, love Izzy”.

Also, one grandmother said “A massive THANK YOU for the opportunity to do swimming lessons. I know we could not achieve this at any local pool, due to the special equipment/hoist needed to help our needs”.

Samuel told us he loves coming to his session, “this is so much fun. It teaches me a lot about swimming. Thanks for all your support”.

Children in Need also had a representative who attended on the night and she was thrilled to see the work we do and the difference we make to the children and young people who she met. She said “it was wonderful to see the children doing so well with their swimming and receive their certificates. Well done to everybody, including staff and volunteers”.

All the staff at Serennu Children’s Centre would like to say a big WELL DONE to everybody who received certificates, we are very proud of you. If you would like details about any swim sessions held at Serennu, please contact Jayne Jones on 01633 748013.
