    HELPING LEVEL WATER SUPPORT CHILDREN THIS CHRISTMAS

    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. As some children around the country return to their lessons, we hope these goggles will make the return to the pool that little bit more fun and exciting for Level Water’s swimmers.

    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.

    Level Water works at n

    Zoggs Swim Diaries: A solo swim to France? No, it’s a huge team effort!

    The time is almost here! As Deborah waits for her channel swim to arrive she shares how she is feeling...

    As I sit here in the middle of the night, wide awake with a mixture of excitement, trepidation and some nerves that are coming and going, mainly from not knowing when I’m going to swim, rather than the swim itself, I’m reflecting on so many things. The main thing that springs to mind is the phrase ‘a solo swim’, when in fact it is far from that. The amount of people who have helped me reach this point would read like an Oscars speech, so I will try not to do a Gwyneth Paltrow, but I would like to thank a few people:

    Zoggs Swim Diaries: What makes Deborah Herridge #SwimHappy?

    Regular open water swimmer Deborah Herridge has shared with us what it is about the sea that makes her #SwimHappy...

    So many things! Where shall I start...my #SwimHappy place usually involves water, preferably salty, throw in some challenging waves (although mill pond seas are always inspiring places to swim in too), golden glitter paths to swim through from the sunshine lighting up the sea, and some great swim buddies to share the wonderful experience with.

    Zoggs Swim Diaries: What makes Susie Rodgers #SwimHappy?

    As part of the Zoggs #SwimHappy campaign, each week a Friend of Zoggs will be sharing their story of the water! To kick off the series Paralympic 50m Butterfly Gold Medalist, Susie Rodgers, shares what makes her #SwimHappy...

    As Zoggs launch #SwimHappy, encouraging everyone to try swimming in all its forms: open water, indoor swimming, diving, triathlon and even free diving, it got me thinking about my own love of the water and why I really get huge pleasure from being a swimmer.

    What makes you #SwimHappy?

    Whether you swim to compete, swim for fitness, take a dip on holiday, or just want to spend some time in the water with the Family, Zoggs wants to celebrate what makes you #SwimHappy!

    It’s well known that taking a dip releases those much needed endorphins. You don’t believe us? A recent study by British Gas SwimBritain conducted by MindLab (2014) ‘The secret to happiness? Swimming has all the answers’ highlights how much swimming can truly help when it comes to positivity, motivation and overall levels of wellbeing. By adding a few laps of the pool into the weekly schedule they found:

    • A reported increase of 35% in posi
