Children at a Hitchin nursery were all smiles on Tuesday as they took part in a sponsored run for National Autism Awareness Day.
York Road Nursery School took on the challenge to raise money for equipment to help children with autism and sensory needs.
They managed to raise £1,600 last year, with staff hopeful that they will have raised even more this time around.
“This year the fundraising will go towards saving for a sunken trampoline that will provide sensory experiences for children with autism and additional needs,” said headteacher Diane Frainer.
“York Road Nursery School is passionate about working with children with special educational needs and disabilities, and pride themselves on providing outstanding care and education for all children.
