It’s a Disney hit famous for its songs about building snowmen.

But fans of Frozen were more focused on building playgrounds at a fundraising sing-a-long on Saturday.

The Wanstead Playground Association hosted the event at The Duke in Nightingale Lane, Wanstead, as part of a crowdfunding effort to refurbish the park in Wanstead High Street.

Organiser Nicola Jarratt said: “The event went really well.

“35 Elsas, Annas and Olafs sang along to the film while being entertained by Loopy Loo Parties’ Sarah Odell, with cookie decorating provided by Laura Omotosho from Cinnamon Cake Company.”

She said the event raised more than £300 in aid of the appeal, which has already raised £8,000 of its £13,000 target.

Nicola said the support of businesses including Dabora Conway, Martin & Co, Zeeba Daycare and Douglas Allen had helped boost funds.
