LETTER: Pirates is the theme for this year’s Big Toddle

The Big Toddle fundraising walk for under-fives is back for 2015 and shiver me timbers the theme is Pirates.

Barnardo’s is calling on nurseries, parents and child minders in the Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford area to arrange an event to help the UK’s most disadvantaged children.

Fundraisers who took part in the Eastbourne walks netted a bumper £1,997 last year.

This summer’s Pirate 
themed Big Toddle will see thousands of children and adults across the UK dressing up and walking the suggested half a mile with friends and family.

Since The Big Toddle began, families have helped Barnardo’s raise over £13.83 million, with 5,800 groups raising £680,000 last year alone.

This year Barnardo’s aims to collect a treasure trove of money for those children who are most in need.
