Youngsters at a Ramsbottom nursery were not frightened off when they took part in a scarecrow walk.
Pupils at Tiddly Winks Nursery helped to make scarecrows and staff then placed them at a range of locations within Ramsbottom.
With the help of a treasure-style map, pupils were able to track down their straw creations.
The nursery is using the walks to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, as a number of families who use the nursery have been supported through illnesses.
Toni Brooks, nursery manager, said: “They keep asking if they can make more scarecrows, so that is always a good sign.
“They really enjoyed trying to find the scarecrows. We put them around Ramsbottom and gave them clues and landmarks to help track them down.”
They have already held one walk, and nursery staff will take some of the children out on further walks during October to help raise further funds.
