Children in Gainsborough toddled their way towards raising a wonderful £317.20 last year, to help Barnardo’s transform the lives of vulnerable youngsters.

And now the charity is again calling for nurseries, schools and families to put their best foot forward and take part in this year’s Big Toddle week from June 18 to 24.

For the second consecutive year the Big Toddle is run in partnership with the much-loved CBeebies TV show, Teletubbies.

This year’s theme is nature, with lots of opportunities for creative dressing up as animals, insects, flowers or even jungle creatures.

By signing up to the Big Toddle, parents can access exclusive nature-themed early years learning resources.

Those who register at or by calling 0800 0087005 will also receive a Big Toddle pack containing information and fundraising ideas.

Steve Oversby, Barnardo’s director for the east of England,said “I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who took part in last year’s Big Toddle.

“The Big Toddle events organised by communities, nurseries and families are a great way of helping Barnardo’s continue our work supporting vulnerable children, young people, parents and carers – and a fantastic opportunity for the under-fives to have fun with their friends and families.”
