Letter: Terrific effort.
ON BEHALF of Barnardo's, I would like to say a huge thank you to all the under-fives who took part in the Barnardo's Big Toddles at Knowsley Safari Park this summer.
More than 600 local toddlers took part in the sponsored half-mile walks held over two days, enjoying a fun day out with their families.
The Terrific Tots joined nearly half a million youngsters from across the UK who have Toddled so far this year, as they raised funds for their local communities and Barnardo's early-years work.
Last year, Barnardo's worked with around 9,000 disadvantaged and vulnerable under-fives, including many living in poverty and those with physical and learning disabilities.
For those of your readers who haven't yet taken part in the Big Toddle 2008, the good news is it's not too late! You can still help Barnardo's to raise pounds 2.1m for our vital work by arranging your own Toddle anytime, anywhere.
You can Toddle with friends and family or even your local preschool, playgroup or nursery. To find out how to take part, please visit our website www.bigtoddle.co.uk or call us on 0845 270 9900.
Nancy Hart, Barnardo's Fundraiser
