TINY tots put their best foot forward as they toddled around Glasgow's St Enoch Centre to raise cash for Cancer Support Scotland.

More than 140 cute youngsters took 4000 baby steps during a fun day out with a serious aim - to boost funds which help people with cancer.

Led around the centre yesterday by Hamley and Hatty Bear, the children dressed as their favourite characters.

Colin Graham, Cancer Support Scotland chief executive, was "delighted" by the backing from the children and their parents.

He said: "The response was overwhelming. Every day in the west of Scotland 54 people are diagnosed with cancer and an increasing number are using complementary therapies we offer.

"All our services such as one-to-one counselling, aromatherapy, reiki and a range of massages are free and we depend on events like this and donations from the public for our funding.

"This year alone we expect to help around 1400 patients at the Calman Cancer Support Centre and we will shortly be introducing an online service to extend our reach to other areas of Scotland and make it easier for people from rural areas or who have transport or mobility difficulties to take advantage of our services."

All the money they raised will go to Cancer Support Scotland to help people whose lives have been affected by the illness.

And youngsters received a Toddle Waddle certificate and a goody bag as a reward for their efforts.
