A charity which supports children, young people and parents is calling for nurseries to take part in his year’s Big Toddle week.

Last year, toddlers from My Little Angels Day Nursery in Upminster and Toddling Tots in Romford helped raise £265,350 for Barnardo’s in Big Toddle in 2017.

For the second year in a row, the Big Toddle is being run in partnership with CBeebies TV show Teletubbies from June 18 - 24.

Lynn Gradwell, director of Barnardo’s said: “East London is full of fantastic parks and green spaces so I hope local groups will embrace this year’s nature theme and get imaginative with fancy dress.

“Barnardo’s has some great resources to help everyone taking part, and by getting involved you can help us support vulnerable children, young people, parents and carers in London and beyond.”

Groups who sign up have access to exclusive nature-themed early years learning resources.
