BRIGHT sparks at the Bright Stars playgroup have peddled around their playground to raise money to help a disabled classmate.

Charlotte Palfreeman, four, who has cerebral palsy, has been helped by Swindon Portage, so other children raised £404 for the support group for disabled children.

The children got on their bikes and made as many laps as they could manage round the playgroup grounds ot raise the cash.

Owner of the playgroup in Moredon Youth and Community Centre in Akers Way, Debbie Garstang said: "There are only 25 children here so to raise so much money is amazing.

"Swindon Portage is a great cause as they help children before they go to school," Ms Garstang added
