Razzamataz Theatre Schools Sheffield and JCI Sheffield have worked together this Easter to provide chocolate cheer for hundreds of people across Sheffield. In an effort to brighten up the mornings of Sheffield Children’s Hospital patients they set to work collecting Easter eggs.
Razzamataz students aged 6-8 years along with JCI representatives visited the patients at the hospital with eggs donated from themselves and local Sheffield businesses. After successfully donating 200 eggs in 2013 and 350 eggs in 2014, the organisations were keen to go one step further this year and gave themselves a target of 400. They hit this and more by collecting 650 eggs.
The Razzamataz students also put a smile on all patients’ faces with a performance in the hospital reception. Children from the wards came down to see a variety presentation of street dance, pop singing and more.
“We are very proud to be able to do just a small part in making the children’s stay in the hospital a little brighter” said JCI Sheffield President, Mark Smith. “JCI Sheffield is all about making a positive change in our community so we encourage our members to be active in organising events like this one. Having the Razzamataz students perform topped off thi special event.”
Sheffield Children’s Hospital require just 500 eggs for JCI Sheffield are now busy donating the remaining eggs to Age UK, Jubilee Food Bank and more community organisations.
