Everything's coming up roses at RMCH
Everything came up roses at the Royal Manchester Children's
Hospital when the Northern Rose Dance Company and Anna Christie
School of Dance dropped in to spread a little seasonal cheer. The
Bolton-based school performed several dances and songs including
Christmas carols and pop tunes before getting in the festive mood
with our young patients at their annual Christmas party.
RMCH Therapeutic and Specialised Play Service
Manager, Susan Fairclough said: "The school have visited the
hospital before and performed beautifully and we were delighted
when they agreed to return at Christmas as it gives a much needed
boost to our young patients and their families."
Founder Elizabeth Collier added: "It's lovely to see children
and young people performing for other children and their families
with such openness and joy! Several of the Anna Christie School of
Dance and Northern Rose company performers have been and are still
patients at RMCH and it's great that they are back dancing."
The performance is just part of the packed Christmas programme
at RMCH which has seen visits by Manchester City Football Club,
Eventbooths, Salford City Reds, the Royal Air Force, Welephant,
Lancashire County Cricket Club and several schools.
