Turtle Tots is a national swim school, that was launched as a franchise in 2011.
With 51 franchises based in various locations across the UK, we are thrilled to have been chosen as their exclusive charity partner.
The company have supported Meningitis Now since 2020, through our much-loved Splash Now campaign. The campaign was inspired following the death of baby, Clara, who sadly lost her battle with meningitis at 10 months old.
To date, the Splash Now with Turtle Tots campaign has raised over £70,000, including gift aid. Once again, Turtle Tots will be making a splash this October, raising vital funds and awareness for Meningitis Now, by hosting sponsored activities as part of their swim lessons.
This year, with their amazing passion and enthusiasm - together with the support of their swim families - the Turtle Tots team are hoping to break the £100,000 mark.
Caroline Sparks, the co-founder of Turtle Tots says:
“Charitable Giving is a huge part of our ethos, here at Turtle Tots. Splash Now is such a fantastic opportunity for the children to show off their swimming and water safety skills, and what’s more, their families love it, too! With their continued support we are hoping to raise a further £30,000 this year, which will enable us to hit a grand total £100,000 since our partnership began.”
Laura Williams, Senior Corporate Fundraiser at Meningitis Now, says:
I’m so excited to be working as part of the Splash Now with Turtle Tots team this year. Caroline and her team have been such fantastic supporters for the last two years running. The funds they’ve raised so far through our partnership are brightening so many lives and we are so grateful to have the whole team on board. Not only are they helping us to raise the vital funds we need to deliver our work as a charity, but also life-saving awareness amongst families across the UK. I think what has been achieved through our partnership with Turtle Tots so far, is a really fantastic showcase of how working collaboratively can have such a hugely positive impact.”
