It's been another highly successful fundraising campaign for Rhythm Time Cheshire as they raise a massive £1600 for Manchester Children's Hospital! During October 2014 the children's music classes held 119 pyjama parties throughout Cheshire and North Staffs. and all the children attended their regular session in their pyjamas and brought along their teddies to join in the fun.

Frances Donkin, award-winning Rhythm Time music franchise owner in Cheshire, and her teachers have supported this event for the last few years. "Our aim was to raise funds to help finance “Giggle Doctors” who visit the sick children in hospital," quotes Frances. "These 'doctors' provide quality 'play' time and entertain the children, to distract from what is often a distressing and upsetting environment.  Sadly, this is not something that the NHS can fund and we were delighted to be able to offer our support and bring some fun and relief to the children," she adds.
