Charity fundraiser goes swimmingly


Babies and children from Puddle Ducks in West Kent and East Sussex have raised £2,137 for CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading charity supporting children and young people with cancer. Every autumn, local swim school Puddle Ducks hold the week-long charity event where children raise money – and learn valuable water safety and survival skills – by attending swimming lessons dressed in their pyjamas. In Kent and East Sussex, CLIC Sargent’s


specialist care team of social workers and nurses provide emotional, practical and fi nancial support from the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton, as well as supporting young cancer patients at home or who are being treated at other specialist children’s hospitals in London, Surrey or Hampshire. Puddle Ducks swimming classes take place at 18 pools across West Kent and East Sussex, providing award-winning swimming programmes for children aged up to 10. Taught by experts, they focus on teaching independent swimming in a nurturing environment with individually tailored activities to suit all abilities. • Visit puddleducks.com

LEAVE THE OUTDOORS OUTSIDE


Ideal for cleaning up wet, muddy football/rugby boots, trainers and wellies, Boot Buddy is the brainchild of young


entrepreneur, Arminder Singh Dhillon, who aged just 15, became the youngest person ever to receive backing from three of TV’s biggest investors on Dragons’ Den for his time-saving invention. Arminder created Boot Buddy as an easy way to clean his football boots after being constantly told off by his mother for bringing mud into the house. Seeking investment and guidance to help take his business to the next level, he and his family braved the Dragons’ Den and secured backing from not just one but three Dragons – Peter Jones, Deborah Meaden and Touker Suleyman. Boot Buddy, £12.99, works for all types of muddy footwear, whether you’ve been jumping in puddles, playing sport, hiking up a hill, strolling around the golf course or mucking out stables. • Visit bootbuddy.com/
