Pics: 55,000 children take part in National Pyjama Day to raise money for charity

Money raised will go to a programme to support families caring for their seriously ill children at home.

SOME 55,000 CHILDREN went to their creches and playschools this morning in their pyjamas to raise funds for the Irish Hospice Foundation’s home care programme.

The programme provides support to families caring for their seriously ill child at home. This is the 11th National Pyjama Day organised by Early Childhood Ireland and it has raised over €2 million for children’s charities.

Speaking today, CEO of IHF Sharon Foley said: “National Pyjama Day is one of the biggest fundraisers for the IHF and, thanks to children, parents and childcare professionals all over Ireland, €700,000 has been raised for our Hospice Home Care for Children programme so far.”

“This wonderful fundraising initiative has been essential in creating a new Hospice Home Care for Children programme and it is changing how care for sick children is being delivered,” she added.
