STAFF and children from a Wrexham children's took on a mammoth walk for charity.

Staff and children from Tan y Dre children’s home in Wrexham walked over six miles from Ruthin's Clwyd Gate to Llandegla in aid of Action for Children.

The charity is celebrating 150 years of commitment to helping vulnerable young people.

And services across Wales are being tasked with walking parts of the Offa's Dyke path - a walk encompassing all 177 miles of the England-Wales border.

Services representatives have donned their walking boots, got lost and braved the rain to complete their sections of the challenge.

Kirstie Holmes, registered manager for Tan y Dre, said: ‘Myself and staff member Heather Jones took on the walk with young people Paige and Lacey along with my baby, Jack. Paige used her girl guiding skills to lead the way and did a very good job as we didn’t get lost.

"The walk took us three and a half hours in total and had a really lovely day. It was great to get out in the beautiful Welsh countryside and celebrate Action for Children’s 150th birthday together.’
