Barrow nursery children take part in fundraiser
Last updated at 10:44, Wednesday, 05 March 2014
NURSERY children were all ears at a special event to raise money for charity.
Youngsters at Happy Tots day nursery in Abbey Road, Barrow, have been taking part in a Chatterbox Challenge every day this week.
The annual event was launched by the communication charity I CAN to raise money for children with hearing and speaking disabilities.
The children at Happy Tots, aged between two and four, hand made oversized ears and mouths as part of the event.
During the week, weather permitting, they marched outside and sang classic nursery rhymes such as The Grand Old Duke of York.
The groups also played games and held discussions to help develop their own communication skills while raising money for those who find communication difficult.
Gemma Pollock, senior nursery nurse, said: "The parents have done really well and hopefully we'll have raised a lot of money for the charity."
