We're holding our 14th Big Toddle for Barnardo’s

You are here


We're holding an animal-inspired Big Toddle on Tuesday June 28th at 10.00am to raise vital funds for Barnardo’s.

Children are being encouraged to dress up in their favourite animal costume and ‘Toddle on the wild side’ for the charity’s annual sponsored walk.

Local families, child-minders and nurseries are being urged to join the annual sponsored event right here at the zoo. All monies raised from the event will help to support Barnardo’s work with disadvantaged children and families around Blackpool and the North West.

Barnardo’s Regional Fundraiser, Jane harries said: “A huge thank you to Blackpool Zoo, which has supported the Big Toddle for 13 years and to all the local families, children and carers who are planning to take part. Your generosity will help us to support some of the most vulnerable children and families in the local area.

Barnardo’s Big Toddle 2016 is proudly sponsored by Aldi’s award-winning baby and toddler brand, Mamia.
