CELEBRATING its 21st birthday, the Barnardos Big Toddle is a fun half-mile sponsored walk for crèche and pre-school aged children.

Over the years, toddlers in crèches, childcare groups, pre-schools, and families from across the country have raised €4.7million in support of Barnardos early years services.

The campaign’s theme, Big Toddle Little Heroes, celebrates the remarkable young fundraisers who make a big impact in the lives of their peers.

The Big Toddle can happen anytime in May or June by registering at - all support ensures that some of the youngest and most vulnerable children in Ireland are given the best possible start in life.
