The kids at Manurewa need some help to ensure they're all geared up for their summer swimming lessons, so we're collecting tidy condition equipment and arranging to get it to them, in time for their pool opening this October.
If you have any of the items listed below, we would love to pass them on to help get kids swimming confidently!:
- Togs (ages 5 -12)
- Pool noodles
- Diving sticks
- Life jackets
All you need to do is drop your donation off to our shop in Newmarket (24 McColl Street), or if you're a regular valet client of ours leave it labelled in a bag for our Technician to pick up when they next visit your pool.
Tone Kolose, Manurewa School Prinicipal: “Anything that would help promote water confidence would be great. Having good attire and equipment means that the students are confident in themselves and have the tools to support them.
“I strongly believe and often send out the message about how important it is to be confident around water. It is a life skill that every kiwi kid should have. The number of drownings every year surprises me, so if we as a school can give our children the confidence and knowledge to be safe in and around water then this will hopefully decrease that number.”
Help us spread word about this initiative by asking your friends and family – we want children swimming and learning about water safety, not sitting poolside if they are poorly equipped!
Finally, from us at Naked Pool Company, thanks for your donations and support - stay tuned to our facebook page for updates and news about the initiative.
