WE would like to thank all the Cambridgeshire under-fives who took part in the Big Toddle for Barnardo's last summer.
We can now tell these terrific toddlers that they raised a fantastic £11,500, which contributed to the overall £1million raised for Barnardo's early-years work and for their local community.
Cambridgeshire toddlers were sponsored to walk a half-mile. They joined youngsters from thousands of pre-schools, nurseries and toddler groups across the UK.
The charity believes in helping children in their early years, as we know that a better start in life leads to a brighter future as an adult.

The Big Toddle is all about children helping children. Groups were invited to keep 25 per cent of the money they raised for a local cause, or to support their own voluntary group.
Barnardo's Big Toddle will take place again in June 2006. To find out how to take part, please visit ww.bigtoddle.co.uk
