A VIRTUAL scarecrow tour has raised hundreds of pounds to go towards helping children in Wrexham.

The Leader previously reported that the Holt Under 5's Playgroup committee created a virtual tour to ensure that everyone can join in the fun, despite the coronavirus pandemic.

They have since raised over £800 which will be split between the Holt Under Five's Playgroup and Wrexham Maelor Children's ward.

Emma Pridding, Holt Under Fives Treasurer, said: "We would love to get to our £1000 target which would give our playgroup much needed funds during this uncertain time.

"You can access the trail online with our virtual tour for a small donation and we have maps available at SPAR, Holt for just £1."
