Local fundraisers have fun in pyjamas


If you were passing by Meadowhead School on Saturday October 7th, you may have wondered why a group of children and teenagers were still in their onesies and PJs.

In fact, far from being sleepy and a little bit lazy, this group of youngsters were doing their bit for charity and were getting ready to sing, dance and act throughout the day at a local theatre school.

The children all attend Razzamataz Sheffield and were raising money for the company’s charity Future Fund, which helps to finance a scholarship for a student to train at a professional performing arts college or university when they reach the right age.

The school as a whole raised £318.94 for the charity!

Since the charity launched, there have been three rounds of auditions at the iconic Pineapple Dance Studios in Covent Garden and thousands of pounds worth of support to ten Razzamataz students. The panel of independent judges who select the winners come from a very experienced performing arts background, having graced the stages in the West End and overseas.

The PJ day is a national Razzamataz event and all the schools, of which there are nearly 50, get involved. As well as having fun and raising money, the day gives the teachers a chance to chat to the students about their options when leaving school.

“Some of our students are keen to progress with their performing when they leave school while others enjoy it for fun, fitness and a chance to catch up with their friends,” says Helen. “We believe that performing arts gives all young people the skills that are needed to progress in life. Whether that is to be professional performers or something completely different, performing arts has been proved to build confidence and raise self-esteem, vital attributes for young people today.”
