A large group of Ellon youngsters gathered with their mums and dads on Tuesday for a sponsored walk in aid of Northsound One’s Cash For Kids charity.

Ythan Child Minding Group organised the Welly-Waddle which kicked off at the town’s Gordon Park.

Leading the walk was Cash For Kids mascot, Courage the Cat, who was a big hit among the little ones.

The event hoped to raise money towards winter coats and jackets for the North East charity.

YCMG Secretary, Liz Duffy, said: “We really wanted to do something that would help local children, BY local children, and this seemed a fantastic cause.

“The children we look after found it difficult to comprehend that another child wouldn’t be able to own a winter coat.

“It’s a thing we all take for granted, so this has been a learning tool for us as well as a way to contribute effectively to our community.”

Ythan Child Minding Group wish to thank everyone who sponsored the children who took part,
