Children walk for stranger campaign in Rainham
Children turned out in numbers for a sponsored walk in Rainham to raise awareness of a stranger awareness campaign.
The crowd gathered for a walk around the village starting and finishing at The Albion Pub.
The walk was organised by the Stranger Danger campaign started by resident Lorraine Auguste, who wants the teaching of children about dangers on the streets to be part of the national curriculum.
She said: “It went really well, we had about 50 or 60 kids there, all the people came out of the shops to support us, cars were beeping, all in all it was a really good day.”
The children taking part were also involved in a t-shirt designing competition, the winners of which will be announced soon.
