YOUNGSTERS are going the extra mile – or eight – in aid of an Olympic-themed charity.
Parents and town mayor Trudy Offer watched at Warwick Hospital as children from Busy Bees nursery took part in games and activities such as tug of war and relay races.
The following morning a Bhangra Tots dance leader visited the nursery's home in Macbeth Approach to get the children up and active.
It is all part of a Golden Mile challenge in which children are being sponsored to complete a total of eight miles of physical activity.
The national event has been spread over 136 working days, incorporating 136 Busy Bees nurseries nationally, and aims to raise £44,000 for the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust.
Since the beginning of January a child-friendly Olympic-Bee-themed torch has been making its way around the nurseries and will end its journey on July 26, the eve of the London Olympics opening ceremony.
