Music group sunflower project
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.
