YOUNGSTERS made chatter matter. Toddlers at TinyTalk's Northwich were taking part in the Chatterbox Challenge 2007 by being sponsored to perform nursery rhymes, songs and stories to raise money for I CAN, the children's communication charity.

Jenny Fraser, who runs the class at Hartford Methodist Church Hall, said: 'We are thrilled to be supporting I CAN and its work with children who have communication difficulties. It is so important to Make Chatter Matter with the Chatterbox Challenge.

'Communication skills are the foundation for children's learning, literacy and social development. Our children were very excited about practising and performing for the event.'
