Raising funds for children is so easy it's a toddle

It was steps for little feet but a giant leap for children's charity Barnardos as it launched its eighth annual Danone Big Toddle yesterday.
On a beautiful spring morning, these pint-sized volunteers took the first steps toward raising funds for the country's most vulnerable children. During May and June, more than 20,000 toddlers and wobblers will undertake a half-mile toddle, adding up to 12,000 miles or the equivalent of half-way around the globe, to raise funds for the 5,000 families Barnardos helps annually.
