Big Toddle

The Time for Tots Big Toddle 2014

Thank-you for showing an interest in our Big Toddle which takes place this Friday at Wicksteed Park.   Registration is now closed for the event to allow us to prepare for the day!

What is the Big Toddle?

The Big Toddle is a short sponsored walk for children under the age of 5 and their families to raise money for Barnardo’s vital work with the UK's most vulnerable children. It has been going for 18 years now and is the UK’s biggest charity event for under 5s with Big Toddles taking place all over the country.

Time for Tots organised a Big Toddle in 2010 which proved a huge success! Nearly £2000 was raised and a fun day out was had by all!

When and where is the 2014 Time for Tots Big Toddle?

Our Big Toddle will take place at Wicksteed Park in Kettering on Friday 27th June 2014.  

The event is on from 10am to 2pm although the Toddle itself should only take 20-30 minutes and will commence at approximately 11am after a fun warm-up with Music Makers. Every child taking part will receive a medal and goody bag on crossing the finish line, and those raising £10 or more will also be treated to a FREE ride on the Wicksteed Park Express!

Refreshments will be provided after the toddle when families can then relax on the lawn and enjoy the games and entertainment - including entertainment from Jelly Tots, bouncy castle, games, face painting and more!

The whole event will be about having fun with family and friends, old and new, whilst raising money to help less fortunate children. 


What happens to the money raised?

75% of the sponsorship money raised will be sent straight to Barnardo’s who use the vital funds raised by all Big Toddle events to support their early years work up and down the UK. To find out more about Barnardos visit:

The remaining 25% will go to local charity "Alfe's Cause" who provide much needed support for families in Northampsonthire who have a child with a long term illness.  To find out more about Alfe's Cause please visit:

We will publish soon after the event the total money raised.
