Local school children walked barefoot across Lego bricks in aid of charity at Swinton Square Shopping Centre.

On Saturday 9th April, local school children took cautious steps along the specially designed LEGO brick walk located at Swinton Square Shopping Centre, navigating their way across thousands of small LEGO bricks barefoot. The fundraising challenge forms part of Swinton Square’s Charity of the Year partnership with Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research.

Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research is a Salford based charity that funds and manages research into new and improved treatments for children with cancer, 1 in 5 children will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 14.

The local community of Swinton and occupiers from the shopping centre joining in the fun and were pushed out of their comfort zone which raised donations topping £700 on the day.

Alison England, Kidscan Community Fundraising Manager said, ‘We wanted a fundraiser with a difference, a Lego walk is quite unusual, we’re delighted with the money raised so far.’

Alongside the Lego walk children were given the chance to make a Lego brick Easter Bunny or Spring Blue Bird to take home as memory of the day.
