A FORCE of more than 70 chil­dren and their fam­i­lies took part in a spon­sored walk at Lake Farm Coun­try Park for Chil­dren in Need.

The event, on Novem­ber 13, started at 8am, with staff from neigh­bour­ing Lake Farm Acad­emy school, in Botwell Road, Hayes, also tak­ing part.

The event was the idea of school prin­ci­pal Craig Hors­man, who was keen to get the chil­dren in­volved in fundrais­ing.

He de­cided to aban­don pre­vi­ous thoughts of a cake sale and to do some­thing much health­ier by tak­ing ev­ery­body on an early morn­ing walk across the wide open spa­ces of the Coun­try Park which sits at the back door of the school.

David Brough, chair­man of Hayes Town Part­ner­ship said: “I was de­lighted to join the walk and to see the fan­tas­tic re­sponse from all con­cerned. For­tu­nately the sun shone and the rain did not come un­til well af­ter the chil­dren were safely back for the start of the school day.”
