SIXTEEN boys and girls from Higher Bebington Junior Football Club took part in the 1K Liverpool Mini Dash, raising more than £1,000 for Claire House.

They were joined by family members for the event in Liverpool City Centre on Sunday.

The youngest runner was three years old. The oldest was eight. The final total raised is not yet known as money is still coming in.

Proud mum Jenni White, whose children were among those taking part, told the Globe: "The children had a great time and are thrilled with the money they have raised so far."
