Tots put their best tooties forward.

Tiny toddlers in Newcastle have been taking strides to boost the coffers of a children's charity.

About 20 tots from the Culverdene Day Nursery toddled a half-mile course with parents, carers and friends.

The grounds of the nursery, on Grainger Park Road, were filled with scores of tiny feet and smiling faces.

The event, which took place yesterday, was for the nationwide Foresters Big Toddle for Barnardo's. The youngsters were also kept entertained with face-painting.

The charity hopes to raise more than pounds 700,000 towards vital work for disadvantaged children under five.

Playgroup leader Miriam Maddox said: "The toddle is about children helping other children. It is fantastic to know that our youngsters can help Barnardo's in this way. It was lots of fun."
