Ovarian cancer signs are being ignored


WOMEN are being failed as the awareness crisis in ovarian cancer deepens. Symptoms of ovarian cancer are being ignored – both by those experienci­ng them and their GPs.

Last year’s annual Barnardo’s Big Toddle saw thousands of underfives take part in short sponsored ‘toddles’ to raise money for vulnerable children supported by the UK’s largest children’s charity. An amazing £198,000 was raised across the UK.

This year marks the 25th year of the Barnardo’s Big Toddle. And we are once again calling for children, their families and nurseries to join in the fun this summer as Big Toddle Week returns with a safari theme from 20th to 26th June.

Parents, carers and nurseries can hold their own Big Toddles to help raise money for Barnardo’s. It could be a community Toddle, one for family and friends or one at your local nursery, primary school or childmindi­ng group.

Register now to receive a Toddle Together fundraisin­g pack containing all the necessary informatio­n and lots of safarithem­ed ideas – such as free medals, stickers and sponsorshi­p forms. Please go to https://www.barnardos.org.uk/bigtoddle for more informatio­n.

On behalf of the children and families we work with I would like to say a huge thank you

Janice Gilroy Barnardo’s Fundraisin­g Manager
