TODDLERS helped to raise money for the YMCA by walking around a Weston park.

Children enjoyed a nature trail while completing the one-mile route around Grove Park.

There was also a bouncy castle, and face-painting and the event raised more than £100 for the YMCA Somerset Coast.

Organiser Charlotte Grant said: “The kids loved it and we had a lot of passers-by taking an interest and getting involved with the activities.

“This money raised, though it may seem only a small amount by some standards, could allow us to offer 10 nights of emergency Nightstop accommodation to a homeless young person.

“That’s 10 nights of safety that these amazing children have helped to provide.”
