Boogie Beat Music and Movement welcomed more than 40 youngsters and their families to the afternoon event on June 10 at St Andrew's Church in Cheddar.

The event was one of many taking place around the country to raise money for Radio Lollipop - a children's hospital radio station who support and cheer up young patients and their families during their hospital stay.

Boogie Beat founders Nicky Attwood and Lisa Langford launched the nationwide event in the hope of raising £1,000, which they have already surpassed.

Nicky said: "It was a brilliant event and we are blown away to have hit our target already."

Children enjoyed a cup of tea with their teddies and took part in a mini raffle.

The grand raffle is set to be drawn on July 3.

It is £1 a strip and tickets can be bought from Woodbury Insurance in Bath Street.
