Ruby loves to go swimming, and her Grandad, Neil, loves to take her!
Neil takes real pride in helping his granddaughter learn a life skill. For Neil it’s a real special bonding experience for him and his granddaughter. However, Ruby was really struggling with her backstroke – it’s not easy! Our swim teachers at Hillsborough Leisure Centre supported Ruby and really helped her to master this skill. Over time she has absolutely cracked it!
Our Swimmer of the Week programme goes into schools to celebrate children who have done something outstanding. In April 2018 we went into Ruby’s school and in front of the whole class presented her with her certificate for swimmer of the week for her efforts! Thanks to Ruby, we rewarded her whole class witha free swim.
