Miniature Barrow heroes take a toddle to help Barnardo’s
Last updated at 13:30, Monday, 25 June 2012
NURSERY children from Hollingarth Day Nursery took part in the sponsored Barnardo’s Big Toddle fundraising event.
The Big Toddle is one of the UK’s biggest charity events for children and the money raised goes to projects including family centres, playgroups and parenting support services across the UK, all of which help children under five.
One of the main aims of the event is to ‘let children help children’ and many schools and nurseries around the UK took part.
Following the national event’s superhero theme, last Wednesday saw around 58 children from Hollingarth Nursery in Barrow power up, dress in their favourite superhero costumes, including Spiderman and Supergirl, and take part in the ‘toddle waddle’.
The walk, which took place at the nursery in Prospect Road, Barrow, was organised by members of nursery staff.
It involved a lap around the playground and a variety of obstacles were laid out to add to the fun.
Teachers from the nursery also took part for the good cause and many parents were there to watch.
Claire Satterthwaite, speaking on behalf of Hollingarth, said: “The day went really well.
“We had lots of support from the parents and the children, who all came in costumes.”
Afterwards, there was a small presentation held by the staff and each child was presented with a sticker and a badge to celebrate all of them taking part.
