Hundreds of babies and toddlers say GIDDY UP at the rodeo in aid of Demelza

Over these next few weeks local Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense babies and tots will be taking part in a fundraiser raising funds for Demelza Children’s Hospice.    The YEE HA themed fundraiser is in memory of baby John Walsh who passed away in September 2017 from a rare genetic disorder, Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).  John was a beautiful baby who loved Baby Sensory (Bexley) and the company is now working together across South East London and Kent to raise funds for one the family’s named charity Demelza House. DEMELZA Hospice Care for Children.  It costs over £10.5 million a year to maintain our current service across East Sussex, Kent and South East London but we know there are many more families in need of our care. As a charity we are reliant on the generosity of individuals, schools, clubs and groups who fundraise for Demelza in fun, exciting and inspiring ways. The Baby Sensory & Toddler Sense YEE HA! activities include: Rodeo challenge (exercise event) Cattle Roping (Ribbon lasso and shakers) Entertainment in the ‘Last Chance Saloon’ (musical …

After an evening of creative activities and storytelling children can enjoy a special night’s sleep in the company of the Gallery’s Old Masters. This year the sleepover will delve into the world of the bestselling American children’s classic From The Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler recently re-published by Pushkin in the UK. Since its launch in June this year, the book has met critical acclaim with The Times saying; “Meet the ultimate escape fantasy which conveys the thrill and fear of being a minor loose in the big city.” The evening will bring to life the adventures of the book’s young characters Claudia and Jamie Kincaid who run away from home to the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York where they become involved in a mystery that leads them to the remarkable Mrs Frankweiler. During the evening children will be able to pay a …
