Nurseries in the borough are preparing for this summer’s toddle

Bromley nurseries are getting ready for this summer’s Big Toddle after raising more than £2,200 in last year’s pirate-themed event.

Children from nurseries including Little Cherubs, Happy Child Nursery and St. Paul’s Sunbeams, Bishop Challoner Nursery and Crystal Day Nursery donned eye-patches and breeches in aid of vulnerable children, young people and families.

Organised by children’s charity Barnado’s - which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year - the event involves groups of children walking half a mile to raise money.

Lynn Gradwell, director of Barnardo’s in London, said: “I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone in Bromley who took part in last year’s Big Toddle, raising so much money to support our work with young people in London and beyond.

“We’re really excited so many people are taking part in our animal-themed Big Toddle, and we hope many more people will sign up to join in the fun in our 150th anniversary year, and help to make sure we are always here to support the most vulnerable children, families and young people.”
