Hundreds of parents and toddlers turned out at the Close House Hotel to take part in a sponsored walk for the Children’s Heart Unit Fund.
All the money raised went towards helping children with heart conditions at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.
Close House owner, Graham Wylie said: “Nearly half the children taking part are heart patients themselves, so it is great to see them getting involved.
“Hopefully we have raised lots of money for a worthwhile cause.”
Ivan Hollingsworth, who’s son Sebastian had heart surgery at the Freeman hospital, was also at the event.
He said: “It is wonderful to see all the children looking so healthy and having fun.
“It is testament to the Freeman hospital and all the hard work the doctors and nurses do to keep the children looking so well.”
