YOUNGSTERS from Croft Preparatory School in Stratford – and their teddy bears – put their best feet forward for a sponsored walk.
Ninety children from pre-school and reception took part in the sponsored walk in aid of the Children’s Air Ambulance.
They were all accompanied by their favourite teddy and, despite their little legs, managed a walk around the school’s 30-acre site.
Together they banked an impressive £2,284 which will go to Children’s Air Ambulance – an inter-hospital transfer service flying critically ill babies and children from one hospital to another for specialist care.
The charity receives no government funding for their daily missions and is completely reliant on personal donations or fundraising events.
Following the walk, the children enjoyed a well-earned teddy bear’s picnic.
Headmaster Mr Cook said: “We are so grateful for the Children’s Air Ambulance Service, it is extremely close to our hearts. We were extremely touched by the generosity of the children’s supporters, and to be able to donate so much more than we anticipated to this fantastic charity.
“Thank you to everyone who donated, to all of the staff who organised the event, and of course to all the children who took part,”
