Tots in pounds 250 charity waddle.

THESE cute little ducks enjoyed dressing up and toddling two-by-two at a special charity event hosted by their nursery.

About 25 children aged up to five who attend Kiddiwinks Nursery in Wallace Road, Radford, Coventry, took part in a toddle waddle to raise cash for the Meningitis Trust.

The plucky ducklings persuaded their parents and friends to sponsor them and hope to have raised a total of pounds 250 when all the money comes in.

Nursery manager Natalie Perrott said: "The toddle waddle is like a sponsored walk for tiny children.

"Obviously, they can't walk that far so we only took them round the block, but it was lots of fun and good exercise.

"We've had lots of support from parents, with some helping us on the day and others donating money.

"We do regular charity work, especially for asthma in memory of my sister, Kimberley, and I think it's really important because the children learn how to be caring for others."

The Meningitis Trust Toddle Waddle has been running for seven years and has raised pounds 1.7 million towards the fight against meningitis.

Nurseries, schools and playgroups can sign up and run one at any time.

For more information on how to take part, phone 0845 644 0184.
