Barnardos children’s charity has launched the annual Big Toddle Little Heroes, celebrating Ireland’s youngest fundraisers, who help vulnerable children of their own age.

The ‘little heroes’ complete a fun half-mile sponsored walk in their crèche, childcare group, pre-school or with their families, in aid of some of the youngest and most vulnerable children who walk through Barnardos’ doors.

Over the last 20 years, toddlers from across the country have raised an incredible €4.46m in support of Barnardos Early Years services.

“I am delighted to be part of Barnardos Big Toddle and most importantly to support the work of Barnardos,” said Big Toddle Ambassador Amy Huberman.

“I have been an ambassador for 10 years now and supporting children to have a better start in life is something very close to my heart. So, to join in the fun and happy toddling everyone!’

Commenting on the event, Barnardos Director of Fundraising, Mary Gamble said: “The Big Toddle at 20 years old is such a huge achievement for all our little heroes who have supported our vulnerable families and children across the country for so long.

“We sincerely thank everyone who has made it such a success. At Barnardos, we know that childhood lasts a lifetime and with the continued help of Ireland’s littlest fundraisers, we can reach even more vulnerable children who need us.”
