CHILDREN put their best foot forward as they walked their way to raising more than £1,300 for a cancer charity.

A total of 45 pupils from Cambois First School took part in a 1.6-mile walk from their school to Charlton’s pub and back again, to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The youngsters were put into mixed age groups, and were joined by friends, family and Pc Steve McIntosh on their journey.

Once at Charlton’s pub, the youngsters were treated to drinks and sweets from the staff.

And last week, they presented a cheque for £1,354.49 to the charity.

Joanne Evans, area volunteer manager at Cancer Research UK, congratulated the youngsters on their “phenomenal achievement.”

She added: “I cannot believe that so few children can raise such a fantastic amount.”

Two prizes were also presented to the two pupils who raised the most sponsorship.
