HUNDREDS of parents and children put their best feet forward to show their support for Jack Robinson.

The PTA at Denmead Infant School, on Hambledon Road, organised a charity walk for Jack, four, who is in Southampton General Hospital after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

Nicki White, who’s five-year-old son Jacob is in Jack’s class, suggested the walk which started at Denmead Junior School and finished at the infant school.

Nicki said: ‘The walk was amazing and I was shocked at how many people turned up.

‘We have managed to raise at least £2,000 which is incredible.

‘Jack’s twin brother, Liam, led the way and I think it was nice for him to do something in way of a fundraiser.

‘I was astounded at how much money was raised. One girl reached £600 and my son managed £200. It’s fantastic for Jack and his family.’
