Hooray for Humphrey's PJ week

Humphrey's National Pyjama week runs from 11- 15 October this year.

It is an annual event in which nurseries and pre-schools raise money via a voluntary £2 donation per child for The Children's Trust, a charity who work with children with multiple disabilities and complex health needs.

Last year over 10,000 children took part, and the aim is this year for 40,000 children to get involved, all wearing their PJ's to nursery. This is where we need your help!

I am proud to have worked with the Children's Trust organising a referral scheme and a special prize draw. We are asking parents, grandparents, aunties & uncles to refer a nursery to sign-up for the fun-filled event. Maybe you have friends who have children attending other pre-schools, or even know of a nursery group held in your local church hall or community centre. You can refer more than one establishment, and enter the draw for each one who registers.

There is a fabulous prize package on offer, including a £100 H & M voucher; £50 Next voucher, a huge bundle of books and Humphrey's Corner merchandise, and a fingerprint charm necklace all donated by The Children's Trust's wonderful supporters. Please see their site for more details.

Signing up your nursery is easy. We have done it with Ruby's and they are very excited about taking part. The nursery will get a resources pack for the event including activity booklets and certificates.

Simply download the referral registration form and complete your details at the bottom, before asking your nursery to sign up. There is also a newsletter/information sheet which you can take along explaining about the event and the charity.

So, get onboard, get involved and get entered into the prize draw!

Please help spread the message too by sharing this blog post (or writing your own if you're a blogger!), or following and retweeting The Children's Trust and HumphreysPJweek on twitter.
