Kids and leaders at Templeshannon Community Childcare were ready for their beds recently when they took part in a nationwide Pyjama Party to raise funds for 'Children Helping Children'.

The group of nine children in the Lollipops Room, along with their pre-school leaders, swapped their usual daytime attire for comfy, fluffy pyjamas and onesies, and enjoyed a day of fun.

The team said they had taken part in the event for the past six years, explaining that the event raises money for a different charity each year. Templeshannon Community Childcare raised almost €500 this year in what they said was a very simple fundraiser. Those funds will go to Early Childcare Ireland who will then donate the total from all participating creches.
