Stepping out for Starlight in Sale

Team photo by the water

Team photo by the waterOn 18 August, Nigel Geddes organised a sponsored walk, with the help of two other local childminders, around Trafford Water Park in Sale. He managed to persuade 29 children, aged between 1 and 13, to walk 2.2 miles!

The children did really well: the two one-year-olds walked the whole distance and some of the older children even braved the stepping stones.

Between them, they raised a fantastic £830! Well done to all!
