Bizzy B's don their PJs for Hospice Foundation

BIZZY B's creche in Loughshinny was awash with colour as the kids sported their favourite bed-time attire for one day only to raise cash for the Irish Hospice Foundation.
The collective efforts of these young fundraisers paid off, with around €300 raised for the charity on the day.
It was all part of National Pyjama Day which has become a huge fundraiser for children's charities in Ireland and organisers will put the money used this year towards the Children's Hospice Home Care programme which will offer support to families who are caring for seriously ill children in their own homes.
It will help to support a dedicated hospice home care service for children and fund a number of children's outreach nurses in the community.
Brenda Lattimore from Bizzy B's was delighted to be involved in the effort again this year, and suitably proud of the children's efforts and their willingness to help children who are less fortunate than themselves.
She told the Fingal Independent: 'We were delighted to take part in National Pyjama day again this year and we will will continue to support this very worthwhile cause into the future.'
Bizzy B's is based in Loughshinny Community Centre and caters for pre-school children aged from two years and 9 months to five years.
