Toddling tots can raise cash for charity


Nurseries across Nottinghamshire raised over £8,000 for children’s charity Barnardo’s last summer, having fun by holding pirate-themed toddles.

Last year, little ones from nurseries such as Little Nippers Pre-school in Rainworth and Nottingham Nursery School, popped on their eye-patches and breeches, as they completed half a mile to raise money for the most disadvantaged children and young people in the area.

Regional fundraiser, Jane Harries said: “We’re hoping that nurseries, child-minders and parents in the area will get registering to take part in this year’s animal-themed Big Toddle, which will be extra special to mark the charity’s 150th anniversary.”
