We’re calling all Water Babies swimmers to help save babies’ lives by fundraising for Tommy’s in our sponsored Splashathon event. Water Babies will each complete a swimming challenge suitable for their age and ability, dressed as their favourite superhero in a specially themed lesson.

Sadly 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss, devastating families.

If every Water Babies swimmer raises just £15 we could support Tommy’s heroes, the doctors, midwives and researchers working to save babies’ lives.

Together we can fund a Tommy’s research centre for 1 year, giving thousands of parents with high risk pregnancies access to expert treatment and care.
