The One Show is looking for non-swimming families

06 Mar 2013

Take part in a short film and learn to swim for free.

BBC's The One Show are hoping to put together a short film which will examine the fact that there are high numbers of people, particularly children, who can’t swim and look at what is being done to address that.

The One Show are looking for a family where there are several generations who cannot swim – this could be a parent and child or maybe grandparents, parent and child – the more generations the better! They would like to be able to speak to the family on film and find out why they’ve not learnt to swim and what is motivating them to want to learn now. They would then arrange some free lessons for the family which they would like to be able to film.

This is a great opportunity for the family to inspire other families to learn to swim together and of course continue the Olympic legacy by inspiring the next generation.
