A really wild Toddle!

We’re gearing up for a really wild time as we host this year’s Barnardo’s Big Toddle.


Under-fives are invited to become their favourite animals as they take part in the UK’s biggest charity fundraiser for toddlers, by completing a short sponsored walk around the zoo site.

The event, which has an animal theme, will take place on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday, June 15 and all participants are encouraged to dress up and join in the fun.

Dudley Zoo Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “We’re delighted once again to team up with Barnardo’s and support the incredible work they do in giving children the best start in life.

“The Big Toddle is always hugely popular, with more than 3,000 taking part last year.

“So make sure you sign up soon and come and have a really wild time helping us raise funds for a very worthy cause.”

Barnardo’s regional director Hugh Sherriffe said: “The Big Toddle is the UK’s biggest and best fundraising event for under-fives and Dudley Zoo is one of the biggest in the UK.

“It’s a fantastic venue and we’re looking forward to seeing hundreds of happy faces across the two days.”

Entry is free for children up to five years-old.

Adults and children aged over five are £6.50 each
