GENEROUS youngsters put their best feet forward to raise cash for others.

Children from Argyle House School in Sunderland took part in their annual sponsored walk for charity.

Every year the children at the Thornhill Park school step out in aid of a different cause, and this year they did the trek for The Rainbow Trust.

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity provides emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness.

The charity’s support workers join the family in their own home and provide whatever practical support is needed.

They might attend hospital appointments with parents, sit by the bedside of the sick child to give parents a break, or take worried siblings out for the day.

Every year the children of Argyle House, a small independent all-age school, manages to raise between £3,000 and £4,000 for their chosen charity and this year they are hoping will be no different.

The primary-aged children set out on their walk from Roker Marina to North Hylton yesterday and the older youngsters will do a longer sponsored walk from Cox Green to the marina next week.
