Babies and toddlers have been doing their bit for charity with a splashathon at Boston’s Pilgrim Hospital.

The event was held by members of the local Water Babies classes, which are run by Georgine Holmes Dickens.

The children enjoyed making a splash with Peppa Pig while raising cash for charity Tommy’s which helps prevent issues such as miscarriage, premature birth and stillbirth.

Georgina said: “For many parents, the sight of their baby doing their first solo dip underwater, or swimming through a hoop for the first time is a very proud moment. Doing it as their first-ever fundraising activity makes it particularly special.”
