Youngsters at a Halifax school have something to celebrate after being gifted a theatre performance by a children’s charity.

Children from Ravenscliffe High School will be treated to a performance of Sleeping Beauty next week when the M&M Productions travelling theatre company visits their school.

The visit has been organised by Happy Days Children’s Charity, a national charity that helps local children with a variety of special needs by providing them with day trips and holidays.

They help young people aged from three to 17 who suffer from a variety of different conditions including learning difficulties, physical or mental disabilities and with acute, chronic or life limiting illnesses.

Happy Days fundraising manager, Rob Cox, said: “We were able to support over 20,000 children and their families last year alone, but we couldn’t have done this without the amazing help of our volunteers and fundraisers.

“So we’d love to hear from anyone who would like to get involved and support our work.

“Our holidays, day trips, workshops and performances are a lifeline to children across the UK providing them with happiness and hope as well as important social and developmental skills.

“We help families caring for children with life-limiting conditions, disabilities, abused children and young carers and would encourage anyone in the area that would benefit from a respite break to get in touch.”
