What is Pyjamarama all about?

What is Pyjamarama all about?

Many children undergoing treatment will stay overnight in hospitals and their familiar pyjamas can be a great source of comfort. During recovery, families can go through multiple pairs of sleepwear in a short space of time as their child will spend most of their time in bed or on a sofa. By asking children to participate in Pyjamarama, you will raise awareness of childhood cancer and create a sense of solidarity as every child can relate to being in their pyjamas when unwell.

What activities can I do for Pyjama Day?

Make your Pyjamarama even more special with one of these additional ideas:

  • Organise a breakfast themed food sale: sell food such as waffles, pancakes and cereal bars or even have breakfast for lunch!
  • Host a sponsored read-a-thon: ask the children to bring in a selection of books and their sleeping bag/blanket to make a cosy reading environment. Ask for sponsorship per page that is read.
  • Tie-dye pillow case:. Get crafty with a plain white pillow case or plain pyjamas and your children can dye them their favourite colours.
  • Plan a bedtime themed sale: ask everyone to bring in a teddy and/or book for a ‘bring and buy’ sale.
