More than 130 children from the Starfish Day Nursery took part in a week-long charity challenge, which drummed up £857 for Barnardos.

The tots, aged from three months to four years, tackled a mini assault course over five days as part of the Fareham nursery’s Toddle for Barnados fundraiser.

Teresa Metherell, nursery manager, said she was overwhelmed by the support.
