NOT even a full-scale blizzard could stop a group of St Leonards School pupils walking across the Tay Bridge for charity.

A team of eight hardy students was greeted by a snowstorm as the pupils made their way on a 2.8 mile journey over the bridge and back in fancy dress to raise money for the Edinburgh Sick Kids Friends Foundation.

The youngsters were well rewarded for braving the freezing conditions, gathering in sponsorship donations totalling more than £130.

The parents of those taking part greeted them with huge cheers at the finish line.

The team comprised Year 8 (S1) pupils Katie Legge, Annie Lennam, Megan Andrews, Abby Oakey, Rhiannon Scott, Emily Wells, Lucy Johnston, while expedition photographer was Mathew Legge (S3).
