A grrr-eat Toddle!

We had a really wild time yesterday hosting Barnardo’s Big Toddle.

Hundreds of under-fives joined in the UK’s biggest charity fundraiser for toddlers by completing a short sponsored walk around the zoo and 11th century castle.

The event, which also takes place today, has an animal theme and we spotted some grrr-eat costumes around the zoo site!

Zoo Manager, Matt Lewis, said: “We’re always happy to help Barnardo’s and this is the 18th year we’ve hosted the toddle.

“This year’s event got off to a brilliant start yesterday and we’re looking forward to welcoming lots more playgroups, nurseries and families today.”

Money raised from the toddle helps support disadvantaged and vulnerable children throughout the UK by providing opportunities and practical support to enable them the best start in life.
