TODDLE: Step up for fund-raising

editorial image

Last year’s Barnardo’s Big Toddle fund-raiser saw thousands of under-fives take part in short sponsored ‘toddles’ to raise money for the UK’s largest children’s charity, which supports more than 300,000 children, young people, parents and carers.

We are again calling for children, families and nurseries to join in the fun this summer as Big Toddle Week returns with an animal theme from June 24-30.

Parents, carers and nurseries can hold their own Big Toddles to help raise money. This could involve a community toddle, one for families and friends, or one organised by nurseries or schools.

We are grateful for everyone taking part as the money raised helps our vital services to support hundreds of thousands of vulnerable children, young people, parents and carers.

Those who register by May 20 will receive a Big Toddle pack containing information and fund-raising ideas.

To register, or for further information, visit or call 0800 008 7005.

Director Barnardo’s East Region
