It’s toddle time!
Barnardos is calling on Ireland’s youngest fundraisers to help vulnerable children their own age by completing a fun half-mile sponsored walk in their creche, childcare group, pre-school and with their families.
Over the last 19 years, these little heroes have toddled more than 300,000 miles and raised €4.2 million in support of Barnardos Early Years Services.
“Barnardos has worked with children and families in Ireland for 60 years to transform the lives of vulnerable children because childhood lasts a lifetime,” said Barnardos Director of Fundraising, Mary Gamble.
“We know that as a result of the cost of living increases the families we support are under more pressure than ever before. This is why this year’s Big Toddle is so important – because with the help of Ireland’s littlest fundraisers we can reach more children who need us.”
Whether you’re a crèche owner, a parent, or a childminder you can organise your own Barnardos Big Toddle anytime in May or June by registering at barnardos.ie/bigtoddle.
Barnardos recommend using Facebook Fundraising as all the money goes to Barnardos and Facebook does not take a fee. It’s easy to set up at facebook.com/fund/barnardosireland/.
