A group of youngsters have been trying to change the public image of teenagers, by giving up their own time to raise money for charity.

The seven pals from Penwortham and Longton swapped their iPods and games consoles for trainers as they geared up for a seven mile sponsored run for seven local charities.

Beth Leadbetter, Joe Thomas, Bethan Lloyd, Chris Heaney, Sophie Gill, Hannah Stewart, all 16, and 17-year-old Jason Chambers, all students at Cardinal Newman and Runshaw Colleges, each pick their own charity, with The Brain Tumour Research Campaign, St Catherine’s Hospice, Breast Cancer Research, MS Resource Centre, Donna’s Dream House, Derian House and The National Deaf Children’s Society being the recipients.
