Junior cowboys and girls donned Stetsons and checked shirts in Sheffield to help raise £1,500 for charity.

Youngsters attending baby sensory classes at Broomhill Methodist Church, Beighton Lifestyle Centre and the scout hut at Greenhill Methodist Church took part in the Wild West themed fundraiser, called Sensathon, to raise money for charity Tommy’s.

They were greeted with music before enjoying a day of cowboy themed activities including songs around the campfire and sock puppet shows.

Baby Sensory manager Pauline King said: “We all had an amazing time, lots of babies and parents dressed up for the occasion and even the class leaders too. There was not a baby in the house who wasn’t in awe of everything they saw, heard and experienced.

“It’s been wonderful to be part of raising such a huge amount for Tommy’s, and we know that some of the families here will have their own stories and personal reasons for getting behind this important charity.

“We want to thank everyone who took part and made the day so special.”
