Big Toddle 2021 has come to an end!

Across the UK, thousands of little ones have Toddled home from their turtle-y amazing adventures with rosy cheeks, glowing memories and a fabulous Big Toddle medal.  

Lots of little feet are truly making an elephant-astic difference, and so far, our amazing Todd Squad have raised over £120,000 to support Barnardo’s work.​​​​​​

During these uncertain times, The Big Toddle has been an opportunity to focus on the joy our little ones can find in the rustle of leaves and the splatter of boots in puddles. It has been a chance to stop worrying about dirty clothes and muddy faces, and simply share incredible experiences and special moments with our little ones.

Thank you so much for joining us on a cheetah-mazing Safari-themed adventure and thank you for supporting Barnardo’s.
