Barnardo's Big Toddle pulls in the crowds to museum.

HUNDREDS of youngsters have toddled their way around a leading South Wales attraction to help raise money for other children.

The event at St Fagans, Cardiff, saw nearly 200 children, their parents and grandparents toddling, walking or being pushed around the grounds of the national history museum's village as part of the Barnardo's Cymru annual Big Toddle.

Children's TV presenter Alex Winters, 32, and his daughter Grace, two, started the walk before joining in on the stroll.

"It was a fantastic day," said Jean Summerhayes, Barnardo's Cymru event co-ordinator.

"The weather really held out and the children had such a fantastic time. Our thanks must go to magician Jasper Blakeley, Britvic for providing the drinks and Mack fruiterer's for supplying bananas, which the children thoroughly enjoyed, and all those who took part."

The money raised will help Barnardo's Cymru run projects including family self-help centres in Cardiff and the Valleys. If you missed the St Fagans toddle you can still help Barnardo's by organising your own toddle and help raise funds for the charity.
