Tiny tots from across Preston will be stepping out to help raise funds for charity.

Last year, children from playgroups and nurseries across Preston and Chorley raised nearly £2,000 by toddling a half mile to raise money for vulnerable children, while dressed in their brightest outfits for the theme of ‘colours’.

Preston tots raised £1,215 while counterparts in Chorley boosted the fund by £358.

The youngsters and their peers ae being encouraged to put their trainers on again to hekp beat lat year’s total and have some fun exercise in the outdoors at the same time.

Big Toddle Week this year runs from June, 14-18 and the theme is nature.

Barnardo’s regional director, Lynn Perry said: “The Big Toddle is a great opportunity for under-fives to have fun with their friends and families and raise money to help disadvantaged children.

“The nature theme means youngsters and their families can be really imaginative with fancy dress ideas and Barnardo’s has some great resources to help everyone taking part and to enjoy the great 
outdoors.
