Hartlepool baby swim business launches Christmas campaign to give children a festive treat in tough economic times

Water Babies Tees Valley, based in Hartlepool, is collecting donations of selection boxes from their clients, which will then be delivered to local children’s charities and food banks in time for Christmas.

Water Babies chief executive Pamela Hargreaves said: “At Water Babies we believe in giving back to our local community and supporting children beyond the swimming pool.

“In these incredibly tough times it’s heart-breaking to think that some families will struggle to give their children the Christmas they want and if we can help in a small way then that would be amazing.
