Swim-It-Forward NZ

  • We are still making a difference

      19 February 2024

    14 Families have now had assistance through Swim-it-forward. The response we receive from families is wonderful, that fact that many struggle to put their children into water safety and swimming classes due to the current financial climate is just overwhelming. Our thanks continue to go to all that have donated, every bit helps, thank you.

  • We are making a difference

      20 January 2023

    I wanted to thank you again for finding for my boys an absolute gem changer for them! What a great Xmas experience they had with more confidence.

    They are just in another week block this week the little man is actually swimming and when he started, he would only hold his nose and dip his face in. What amazing classes that I will continue on for him. Thanks for giving us the head start we needed and what a wonderful swim school SWIM GFX is.

    My older son has gone from strength to strength, and I feel confident with him swimming with his peers now!

    So, thank you with all the drownings this summer I was constantly aware how important these lessons are!

    I’m so thankful and proud.

    You have given us such a gift! Thank you all!

  • Update - sharing some fantastic feedback from recipients

      16 December 2022

    Thank you, it is such a wonderful and important idea! It is exactly the reason we had to stop my sons’ classes when he was 3yo as it had got too expensive for us after the covid lockdown 😔

    I will be sharing the fund to friends and family as ideas to gift on behalf.

    Thank you. My girls have been swimming, but I had to stop their lessons as just couldn’t' afford the cost any longer. I am a solo working mother with 3 school aged children. I really appreciate you looking at my application.

    Wow!! .. Incredible opportunity for Families. My emails have gone mad already!

    This is amazing! Thank you so much. Very grateful for this opportunity for my children, will be sure to take some pictures!!

    Wonderful! Thank you so much!! Our family are so grateful to have this opportunity.

    This is so amazing thank you so much it is very much appreciated.

    That’s so awesome thank you so much!!

    That is exciting to hear that we have received funding I'm so excited to see my children enjoying lessons

    We did pull out recently - because of cost! Such a good outcome to get some funding!
