The Big Toddle


The Barnardo’s Big Toddle is a short sponsored walk for toddlers that raises money for Barnardo’s vital work with Northern Ireland's most vulnerable under 5s.

Whether you're a nursery, playgroup, childminder or parent, you can take part by organising a Big Toddle for your children. You can hold it whenever and wherever you like. It’s up to you if you want to make it a big event for all the toddlers in your community or keep it simple with just a walk around the park with your children.

Every year we have a fancy dress theme and this year it's Animals. Which means all Toddlers (and adults) are invited to dress up as their favourite animal.. But no matter which costume they choose every child taking part will be a star as all the money raised will help Barnardo's to give children the best start in life.

If you would like to organise a Big Toddle, or just find out more information, please contact us on 028 9067 2366 or email

Help make a difference to more children’s lives and give your little ones a day to remember!
