Two showings of the sing-a-long version of the Disney hit, Frozen, at the Picturedrome in Northampton raised more than £1,110 for Northampton General Hospital.

The money will go towards the children’s wards of the hospital.

Alison McCulloch, Community Fundraiser for Northampton General Hospital, said: “Thanks again for thinking of the hospital we very much appreciate it. The children’s wards are currently saving up for slim line recliner chairs to go next to the beds of the children, to enable parents to sleep next to their child’s bedside”.

The recliner chairs are slim line, meaning they can comfortably fit next to the beds and gives parents that much desired comfort during their child’s stay in the hospital. Most importantly, it means that parents are able to stay next to their child during their stay, giving them the support and love they need.

Jay Moore, the manager of The Picturedrome, was delighted with the turnout on the day.

He said: “All of the children had a great time singing along to Frozen. We are so pleased to help raise money for the hospital and such a great cause.”

Jake Richardson, managing director of The Richardsons Group, said: “As my daughter has spent a considerable amount of time on Paddington Ward and the High Dependency Unit, I am very aware of how important it is for parents to be able to spend time with their children while they are in hospital and have reasonable comfort when doing so.

“I am therefore very pleased that we are able to help in this small way.”
