Crowns and tiaras came out in force as families and friends marched around Windsor Great Park in the Crown Estate in support of Sebastian’s Action Trust.
More than 100 people attended the fourth annual Crown and Tiara Walk, which was held yesterday.
Walkers braved strong winds to stroll the seven miles around the picturesque grounds in Windsor, starting at Trevelyan School in Wood Close.
For the first time the trust organised a fairground, bouncy castle, mini-golf and set up various stalls to keep families occupied throughout the day.
Charlotte Bowles, PR and communications officer for the trust, said: “It’s a great day out for families and the little girls love to look like princesses for the day.
“It’s also beneficial for kids who are unwell because they can be around like-minded children.”
The trust managed to raise more than £2,000 at the event which will go towards running the Bluebells holiday house in Basingstoke.
The home provides apartments and care to offer respite to the families of children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
Charlotte said: “We don’t just provide for the sick children but also their siblings and parents and relatives, so every bit of the money with go back in some way to help support our families.”
