We are really excited to announce our new partnership with Swim Stars and Dolphins based in South Yorkshire to provide healthy snacking options after swimming lessons. With South Yorkshire having some of the highest obesity rates in the UK both companies have the same values; to get more kids living healthier lives.
Swimstars & Dolphins was founded in 2000 by 3 mums Sara Pegden, Susan Fynney and Frances Lacey, who shared a love of swimming with their children. Having realised there was a lack of quality swimming lesson providers, Sara, Susan and Frances set out with their planning, research and training and Swimstars & Dolphins was launched. Each week they teach thousands of children to swim and develop their water confidence with their own unique teaching style.
Swimstars & Dolphins specialise in providing swimming lessons for children from 2 up to the age of 13. Taught by qualified instructors and trained Water Buddies who all set out to encourage and develop children’s ability in the water.
Their classes ensure that they have fun whilst still learning vital water safety skills and create a love for swimming for life!
In many leisure facilities and the vending machines located within them do not contain any healthy snacks to complement the swimming lessons and exercise the children have taken part in. The partnership will be providing Scrummies as complimentary snacks to the children taking part in the swimming lessons in an effort to encourage healthier eating choices.
The partnership with Swimstars and Dolphins is a great opportunity to provide sponsorship within the Yorkshire region to help get more kids choosing healthier eating options. There is a distinct lack of health snacks positioned in leisure venues and we feel this need to change. It’s great to partner another company who also feels healthier options should be present to encourage better eating habits and give people more choice.
All the products we produce are 100% natural and provide a healthier option whilst still being a treat which we think is important when rewarding kids.
We have been looking for suitable brand ambassadors with the same ethos as our company since gaining our listing with Morrisons Supermarkets and being a position to create a long-term partnership. We think the being able to swim is one of life’s essential skills and the work that Swimstars not only teaching kids new skills but also keeping them active is fantastic!
We hope that this partnership leads to further events and sponsorship opportunities within Yorkshire and beyond.
