A cast of colourful cartoon characters delighted youngsters on the children’s ward at Kings Mill Hospital when they turned up to deliver gifts.
Mansfield-based children’s entertainers Little Idols bought the presents with cash raised from carrying out an ice-bucket challenge at the Riverside Club in Chesterfield.
Around £60 was donated by parents and kids and director Tim Dallison matched the money from his own pocket.
Tim said: “It was freezing! It was like total brain-freeze! It only lasted a minute but it was pure shock.
“We felt better for it afterwards. We had a big audience - around 100 people. They have an ice-maker behind the bar at the club so the bin was filled with ice!”
Tim, of Mansfield Woodhouse, was dressed as Prince Hans from the popular children’s film Frozen, and he was joined by Amber Buttery, costumed as Queen Elsa and Hannah Winterson, dressed as Princess Anna.
The firm was founded last year to provide children’s entertainment for parties by Tim, who is also a Robbie Williams tribute singer, and his partner Claire Bebb.
The company’s first gig was for Tim’s four-year-old son Caleb’s birthday on 27th October, and the outfit has since expanded to hire ten members of staff who dress up as everyone from superheroes to Spongebob Squarepants, providing fun for youngsters.
