A FEW extra farmers and animals could be seen stomping around the fields at Westfield Farm in West Pinchbeck on Friday.

The adorable additions appeared from the Westfield Farm Day Nursery in a bid to raise money for Children in Need.

More than £500 has been collected as a result of a two-mile sponsored walk by the tots and their parents, with more cash still coming in.

Nursery deputy manageress Averele Bulbeck said: “Even the babies joined in, we were really impressed.

“We had hoped to collect about £150 but we’ve already well surpassed that.

“The parents made a lot of the costumes themselves and all of the farmers’ costumes were hand-made. They all looked gorgeous, we’re so pleased with how the parents committed to it.”

Selling cakes made by nursery staff and parents on the day also contributed about £100 to the total.
