HELPING LEVEL WATER SUPPORT CHILDREN THIS CHRISTMASPosted: 20/12/2020Categories: Charity, Uncategorised, News, GogglesRead more >
This Christmas, Zoggs is donating 500 pairs of goggles to children with disabilities. We are supporting the national swimming charity Level Water who arrange 20,000 one-to-one swimming lessons each year for children with disabilities.

The charity is encouraging children to use their goggles in the bath over Christmas, to practice blowing bubbles and get used to the water again, before their lessons restart in the coming months.

As I crossed the Solent on the Red Funnel ferry, the shear enormity of what I have taken on seemed to literally wash over me. At one point, I could see Ryde from one window, and the Hurst Narrows (if I squinted) out of the other.
