Thousands of Midlands youngsters dodged the rain clouds to join Barnardo’s Big Toddle around Dudley Castle courtyard.
This year’s four-day event (June 7, 8, 9 and July 14), is based on Todds Animal Kingdom and includes themed activities, stories and Big Toddle tunes.
Youngsters joined the action by dressing up as their favourite animals and helped raise funds for the charity, despite the showers.
There’s still time to join the fun on July 14 – register for free at www.bigtoddle.co.uk
