Youngsters and adults paint park pink in aid of Breast Cancer Campaign.

YOUNGSTERS and staff from a Barnstaple nursery and preschool made a colourful appearance at a town centre park to raise money for a national breast cancer charity.

Kiddywinks Neighbourhood Nursery and Pre-school always makes a big effort during Breast Cancer Campaign’s Wear it Pink Day – but this year was their most successful fund-raiser yet.

Around 70 pink-clad children and adults enjoyed a sponsored sing along and picnic at Rock Park. The nearby Park Hotel donated sandwiches for the event, which has already raised �520 for charity.

The final tally was given a further boost thanks to a cake sale and a sponsored silence by 10-year-old Sophie-Mae Silvester.

“This was our best event yet and we’re so proud that such a small group of people has managed to raise such a large amount of money,” said nursery owner Sarah Silvester.
