A Big Toddle for Barnardo’s at Children 1st @ St. Peter and St. Paul

The 2018 ‘Big Toddle’ theme was ‘The Teletubbies’ and the children rose to the occasion looking wonderful as they arrived at nursery dressed up as Teletubbies or in teletubby colours.

The Big Toddle is an annual event held to help Barnardo’s raise money to improve the lives of the most vulnerable children in the UK. We were delighted to get involved again this year, with the charity’s ‘Easy as ABC’ catchphrase as our guide.

A is for active, getting some outdoor exercise

B is for big fun and loads of laughter

C is for children helping children

As getting close to nature also formed part of the theme, we made sure our big toddle started in the nature area where we could see everything that was happening on a lovely sunny day. The plants are now growing really quickly and the pollinating insects were busy visiting the flowers so there was plenty to see and hear.

We are very fortunate to have beautiful grounds here at St. Peter and St. Paul and so after exploring the nature area, we continued our nature walk around the play area and the tree lined field.

The children and the staff really enjoyed their walk and, best of all, our big toddle helped to raise money for the benefit of children in need.

We would like to thank everybody for donating and a say a big ‘thank-you’ to everybody for making the effort to dress up with such a difficult theme!!
