In pictures: Funds raised for Barnardo's in Windsor Big Toddle

Toddler took a walk in Windsor Great Park on sunny Sunday to raise money for Barnardo's.

Families from the Caterpillar 2 Butterfly child minding group stepped out on The Long Walk and invited friends along to take a few steps to help less fortunate children.

 

 

Each year up to half a million tots take part in this short sponsored walk to raise money to help to transform the lives of disadvantaged children under five, but this was the first Windsor Big Toddle.

The theme of the event was Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales so the little ones sang some classic rhymes along their route.

Caterpillar 2 Butterfly owner, Samantha Rath, said:  "I always have a charity event every year, and this is a good way to involve the families and the kids.

"It's happening all over the country but this is the only one happening in Windsor.

“Its an introduction early on to children who are less fortunate than them.”

Participants raised £330 through sponsorship, which is enough to provide temporary accommodation for a child escaping domestic violence.
