Swim school raises funds to help disabled children

They carried out sponsored swims.

A swim school has raised £2,500 after a number of sponsored swims.

Angela’s swim school- which has centres in areas including Bromley, Bexley, Gravesend and Dartford- donated the funds to the Lady Taverners’ Play Spaces Appeal.

They work to provide suitable outdoor play equipment for children with severe learning and physical disabilities.

There are currently more than 770,000 children under the age of 16 in the UK with a disability and the Lady Taverners’ Play Spaces Appeal has a £250,000 target, which they hope will enable more schools to be kitted out with the equipment required to give their pupils the chance to experience ‘play’.

The swim school presented a cheque at a special luncheon attended by the chair of Lady Taverners and the Mayor of Dartford.
