MOTHERS in Henley and Sonning Common gathered to raise money for a charity.

MOTHERS in Henley and Sonning Common gathered to raise money for a charity.

More than £9,000 was raised when the women took part in a “Sensaathon” with their babies and toddlers.

They were raising money for Tommy’s, a charity that funds research into stillbirth, premature birth and miscarriage.

One Sensathon took place at Sonning Common village hall and the other at the Henley Cricket Club pavilion. The children were dressed in capes, masks, full body suits and spandex as they impersonated superheroes such as Superman and Wonder Woman.

Baby sensory are classes run to help development of babies in their first year of life.



Bryony Jose, who runs the classes in Henley and Sonning Common, said: “The Superhero Sensathon is an enormously fun event that encourages parents and pre-schoolers to tap in to their inner Batman and raise funds for the research work that Tommy’s pioneers.” Jane Brewin, chief executive of Tommy’s, said: “Sensathon is a great way for mums and dads to involve their little ones in a good cause.

“Tommy’s relies on the generosity and hard work of its supporters like baby sensory to continue its pioneering research to prevent pregnancy complications.

“We hope everyone taking part had a super time!”
