A group of children made a real song and dance about making a presentation to Blackpool Victoria Hospital.
Children from the Lytham Rarity School of Dance and Drama used the proceeds from their Christmas performance to buy CD players and discs for the Children’s Ward.
Dance school principal, Rebecca Liddell explained: “This is the fourth year we have supported the ward. The hospital is very special to the children as many of them have had treatment here.
“The children like to put something back for the care they have received and we have given the proceeds from the sale of tickets and programmes.”
The show, a Christmas Cracker, raised £350 and this was invested in CD players and music discs suitable for younger children.
“Our youngsters love coming to the ward to see the children and we are delighted to be able to help make life a little more comfortable for the patients,” Rebecca added.
Receiving the presents, play specialist, Leanne Lamb said the hospital was delighted with the musical gifts.
“Music is vital for sick children as it can help the healing process while reducing anxiety, pain and depression.
“We are very grateful to Rarity School of Dance and Drama for their ongoing support.”
