Youngsters take Big Step Forward and raise more than £3,200

A team of young walkers have raised more than three times their charity fundraising target.

Children from East Berkshire Down's Syndrome Support Group took part in the Big Step Forward 5km sponsored walk in Windsor Great Park on Sunday.

The event was part of a national initiative by the Down's Syndrome Association.

The youngsters raised more than £3,200 and the money will go to speech and language camps that will be held over Easter and the summer.

The camps focus on speech and language therapy but also include other activities designed to help children with Down's Syndrome.

The walkers taking part were: Becky Hennegan, Marcus Unger, Zac O’Hara, Alfie Liddell, Zoe Greasley, Alessandra Plewman, Theo Salter, Jessica Cook and Cian Nyland.

Magician Magic Mark also joined them on his unicycle.
