Giant strides made for charity.

These charity walkers have plenty to smile about - and so will dozens of poorly children thanks to their energetic fundraising efforts. Two-year-old Laura Williams, big brother Callum, five, Alice Liney, six, and eight-year-old Thomas Hunt have taken big strides towards raising more than pounds 1,000 for the Noah's Ark Appeal.

The children were taking part in a sponsored walk organised by Laura and Callum's dad, Shaun, in aid of Wales' own children's hospital.

Almost 30 people took part in the walk on Saturday, completing all or part of a 10-mile route from Cardiff Bay to Castell Coch.

Innovate Trust support worker Shaun, who lives in Grangetown, Cardiff, with wife Catherine and Laura and Callum, said: 'I'd like to say a big thank you to all who supported the walk, not just people who took part but those who helped along the way, such as Asda in Cardiff Bay who gave us refreshments.

'Everybody made a big difference and we're very grateful and proud of raising the money.'
