ORGANISERS of a sponsored toddle/waddle at Haddo House have praised the “overwhelming” support for the event.

Ellon group Mini Groovers arranged the recent fundraiser, which also involved a buggy push and treasure hunt.

A total of £921 was raised on the day and more cash is expected by the end of the month.

When the final tally is reached, the money will be divided between the Friends of the Special Nursery, Aberdeen, and the Ellon branch of the National Autistic Society.

More than 50 youngsters and their families took part in the Haddo event.

Julie Emslie, who runs Mini Groovers, said she had been overwhelmed by the support and generosity of everyone.

She explained: “We have lots of happy, healthy little ones who come to Mini Groovers who started their lives off in the neo-natal unit at Aberdeen.

“Also the National Autistic Society Ellon branch is an amazing source of help and support to local families.

Julie added: “We have yet to confirm the final amount but I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came and joined in the day or has made a donation.

Mini Groovers meet in the Kirk Centre on Tuesday and Friday, and on Monday at Inspire, Beach Boulvard, Aberdeen.
