Barnardo’s Scotland would like to thank all the under-fives in Kelso who took part in the Barnardo’s Big Toddle 2010 and raised £499.54.

These amazing toddlers (along with 500,000 others from across the UK) took part in a short sponsored walk and helped to raise a fantastic amount for vulnerable under-fives in the area. The funds raised by each toddler are vital for supporting local children, including those with physical and learning disabilities, autism and behavioural problems.

Barnardo’s Scotland would love to see more local tots registering for the Big Toddle this year. It’s a great day out and this year is set to be a roaring succ ess – as toddlers are being encouraged to dress up as their favourite safari animals.
