Toddlers from the local nursery dressed up as a variety of animals and took part in a half mile walk to raise money for the children’s charity.
  This year Barnardo’s Big Toddle for under five year olds is marking its 20th anniversary and is really excited to team up with the Teletubbies who are also celebrating their 20th birthday. With the theme of ‘colour’ it will make this year’s event the biggest and brightest yet.
