Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

A CHIL­DREN’S mu­sic group has helped raise hun­dreds of pounds for char­ity by grow­ing sun­flow­ers.

Rhythm Time, which runs classes at Elim Chris­tian Life Cen­tre on Par­son­age Street, sup­ported the Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis Trust by selling sun­flower seeds to the chil­dren, who were chal­lenged to grow the tallest one they could.

The pro­ject was inspired by Gabriel, a twoyear-old with cys­tic fi­bro­sis who at­tends a Rhythm Time the class else­where in the county.

Frances Donkin, the fran­chise owner for Rhythm Time in Cheshire, said: “We heard about this won­der­ful idea from one of our Rhythm Time mums, Gemma, whose son, Gabriel, has cys­tic fi­bro­sis. So far £622 has been do­nated by Rhyme Time Cheshire.

“We could never have achieved this with­out the on­go­ing gen­eros­ity of our amaz­ing Rhythm Time par­ents and car­ers.”

Rhythm Time pro­vides mu­sic classes to about 1,500 ba­bies, tod­dlers and pre-school­ers across Cheshire.
