Money raised for the children’s charity will help to fund vital research for sick and disabled babies and children.

Lucy Hynes, community fundraising manager for the east region, said it has been a “really fun weekend”.

“We were thrilled with how many people attended over the weekend and we are delighted to have raised £11,000 with a few more donations still to come in,” she said.
