LITTLE ones at a playgroup took part in a sponsored walk to help raise much needed funds.

The playgroup is currently located at Llandudno Junction community centre but will move to Ysgol Awel y Mynydd.

On Friday, June 7, children walked from the playgroup over to Conwy and generous workers from Jonny Doughs gave children the opportunity to make their own pizza before heading back over to the playgroup.

Adam Robertson, 34, committee member for Llandudno Junction playgroup, said: "We are a charity based organisation who have been struggling this year due to numbers. We were looking for a cash boost to assist with running costs; the fees for the use of the community centre are high which is why we are moving to Ysgol Awel y Mynydd.

"We need as much as possible to help with running costs. We recently held a raffle which, thanks to the local businesses, helped us raised £230 for the playgroup.

"Through the walk we have raised about £200."

Five children took part in the challenge.

Adam, who is married to Tegan, 34, added: "The children loved it. They were tired and hungry after the big walk so were excited with the chance to make their own pizza."

Adam and his wife have lived in Llandudno Junction for 10 years.

Adam took his son Elliot on the walk, who is the youngest of four children.

"Elliot has additional needs as well as some health complications," Adam said.

"The playgroup has helped his development so much. All of the children enjoy playing and learning through fun with one another. He enjoys the routine of playgroup."

Adam and his wife have been involved in the playgroup for three years and the couple have been on the committee since October.

"We would like to thank the businesses that heave helped us with our fundraising efforts," Adam added.
