EMPATHY For Special Children, a group to help youngsters on the Autistic scale, held a sponsored walk to Flounder's Folly on Sunday.

The mile long sponsored walk from Callow Hill to the folly raised money for the group and was part of April being Autism Awareness Month.

The theme of this is to 'light the world blue' so walkers dressed in blue with some even donning Smurf outfits.

A picnic on the steps of the folly was planned and around £500 was raised for the group.

Empathy For Special Children meets at the Craven Arms Community Centre every other Saturday from 2pm to 4pm.
