A FUNDRAISING family walked from Sidmouth to Budleigh Salterton to raise £315 for the National Autistic Society.

Fortfield Mews resident Sasha Harrison, 40, organises the trek every year. Her eleven-year-old son Brendan has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism.

Cash raised from this year's seven-mile hike smashed last year's record total by £65.

Fundraising walkers, pictured from left to right, are St Nicholas School pupil Brendan, his sister Georgia, friend Aron, Sasha's step-daughters Traci and Leah and Sasha. Her husband Michael took the photo.
