A swimming class for babies and toddlers in Cumbernauld has given a boost to a national charity appeal.

Water Babies Scotland Central met at the Craighalbert Centre pool to participate in the Splashathon on behalf of Tommy’s, which supports research into stillbirth, premature birth and miscarriage.

The tots - some just weeks old - took part in a variety of fun events from swimming challenges to pirate fancy dress, while official charity partner Peppa Pig looked on.

Franchisee Elaine Jackman said: “We do this on a biennial basis and have so far raised over £14,000 for Tommy’s, and that is just the online fundraising.

“That is a fantastic performance, more than £100 per member. I have to say a big thank you to all of our swimmers and sponsors.”
