Babel Babies is reading, quizzing and singing for local hospitals because they are doing such amazing work for our community!

This Bank Holiday weekend we organised Babelathon: a fundraising event for two local hospital charities in Bristol and Gloucestershire.

The schedule of Facebook live events is as follows:

Friday 8th May, 1pm: Readathon!
Cate reads all the Babel Babies stories she can find on the shelves, collected over the last nine years. There are many, many stories, in lots of languages!

Saturday 9th May, 1pm: Family Quiz!
Danni dons her quizmaster hat and entertains your family with a quiz. There will be questions suitable for all the family to join in.

Sunday 10th May, 1pm: Singathon!
Jen sings songs in different languages (including English) for THREE hours, with lots of clapping songs for the NHS! It's fundraiSING!

All of these events were live-streamed on Facebook on and the videos are available to watch all week. Do come over and join in, and help raise money for Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals and Above & Beyond, Bristol City Centre Hospitals by donating what you can to the cause.
