Wellies and waterproofs for Toddle

Hundreds of under fives donned their wellies and waterproofs as they joined Barnardo’s Big Toddle at DZG.

Undeterred by the rain families splashed in puddles as they completed a short walk around the zoo site in support of disadvantaged and vulnerable children throughout the UK

Marketing Manager Andrea Hales said: “We’ve hosted this popular event for the past 20 years and it’s always a great day.

“Despite the weather everyone made a great effort and we spotted lots of lovely animal costumes as we handed out medals at the Toddle finish line.”

Money raised from the event helps Barnardo’s provide opportunities and practical support for vulnerable children to enable them the best start in life.
