Saints support Northamptonshire Sport to promote water safety

Saints players Kahn Fotuali’i and Ahsee Tuala last week visited the children of Hardingstone Academy to support Northamptonshire Sport in delivering their water safety message.

With floods affecting large parts of the country over the past month, as well as summer just around the corner, it is considered a priority to prevent drowning in the county.

Last year, drowning was the third most common cause of accidental death in the country, and many of the deaths could have been easily prevented by simply being with someone who knew how to react and handle the situation effectively.

The session kicked off a terms’ worth of activities, culminating in many of the students taking part in the production of an information video.

Steve Jackson (Northamptonshire Sport Schools Swimming Manager), who led the session, says that “Drowning prevention is very important. People, and especially children, need to be aware of how they can enjoy the water in a safe and responsible way and-if necessary-how to help others without putting themselves in danger.”
