Children at Longridge’s The Little People at the Limes enjoyed a visit from the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital’s mascot Humphrey Bear after learning they had won the hospital’s prize draw, winning a car for them to play on in the nursery.

So staff decided to organise a special ‘pyjama day and cake sale’ and raised the fantastic amount of £140 for the hospital by wearing pyjamas and making and selling cakes.

They even commandeered passers-by to visit their stall at the front of the nursery off Berry Lane.

Humphrey visited all the children in the nursery and also the children at the “Tots and Toddlers” group.
