Big Toddle – Coronation Street’s Tina O’Brien Urges Parents to Get Involved

Former Corrie star and mum Tina O’Brien is teaming up with children’s charity Barnardo’s and Fairy Non-Bio Gel, in encouraging parents to get involved in the Big Toddle.

The Big Toddle is the UK’s biggest charity event for children under the age of five, and a fun opportunity for parents to celebrate a special and worthwhile experience together with their little ones. Each year, up to half a million children take part in the short sponsored walks across the country, with the money raised going towards charitable projects that help less fortunate children learn and play.

To get involved in celebrating your little ones, you can organise your own Toddle, or join one near you! Throughout the summer anyone can Toddle – nurseries, crèches and playgroups; to parents, friends and family. And this year, parents are encouraged to bring along any unwanted clothes to their local toddle to pop into ‘Fairy’s Basket of Softness’, which will be donated to Barnardo’s at the end of the event.

Terence Lovell from Barnardo’s, alongside Fairy Godmother and mum Daniela Pinto, give some handy hints and tips in this video to help you get the most out the Big Toddle.
