Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

TOD­DLERS wad­dled around a park in a spon­sored walk to raise money for a chil­dren’s char­ity.

Around 40 young­sters signed up for The Big Tod­dle in South Park, Mac­cles­field, or­gan­ised by mum Lau­ren Roberts in aid of Barnardo’s.

Chil­dren started and fin­ished the 1k walk at Skamps nurs­ery and were ex­cited to be joined by Anna and Olaf from Dis­ney’s Frozen. The event raised around £1,200 for Barnardo’s.

Lau­ren said: “I’m a mum who wanted to or­gan­ise an event for the lo­cal tod­dlers and raise some money for a great char­ity.

“There was an amaz­ing turnout on the day and all the tod­dlers had an amaz­ing time.

“The chil­dren re­ceived cer­tifi­cates and medals for their ef­forts.

“A huge thank you to Skamps nurs­ery for let­ting us start and end the walk at their nurs­ery, and Di­a­monds and Toads chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ers for dress­ing as Anna and Olaf and lead­ing the walk.

“I also want to thank Ni­cola Marie for do­nat­ing her amaz­ing skills for face paint­ing, a big thank you to Tun­ni­cliffes for do­nat­ing the big bright ban­ner and to M J Roberts painter and dec­o­ra­tor for buy­ing the medals.”
