Youngsters at a Hitchin nursery have marked Autism Awareness Week with a sponsored run.
The kids at York Road Nursery School ran on Monday to raise money to buy an inflatable trampoline.
Teacher Ruth Cotterill said: “This will give children with autism, and other children too at York Road Nursery, the sensory experience to help with their learning and improve fitness.”
Head Diane Frainer said the run had also helped raised awareness of World Autism Week among children and parents. “Everyone joined in with the run and had a great time,” she added.
The nursery has just been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted inspectors for the fourth time. To mark the occasion, artist Kim Raymont – whose four children went to the nursery, and who was formerly a governor – created a litho print of its grounds.
