Teletubbies team up with Barnardo’s for The Big Toddle

By Messenger Reporter

Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po are lending their support to youngsters who will toddle their way through Dartford.

This summer children’s charity Barnardo’s will be teaming up with the four Teletubbies to celebrate their 20th anniversaries.

Between June 19 and 25 toddlers will walk half a mile across different parts of the country, including Dartford.

The fundraiser, known as The Big Toddle, has raised £14.5 million since 1997 helping more than 248,000 children, young people and families.

Last year the toddle’s theme was ‘animals’ and youngsters in Dartford raised more than £750.

The 2017 toddle has a ‘colours’ theme.

Jonathan Whalley, south east and Anglia director at Barnardo’s, said the event promised to be a fantastic party.

He said: “I am excited Barnardo’s has teamed up with the Teletubbies, some of the most popular characters in TV history.

“Last year the event raised almost £600,000 in total, which is helping to transform the lives of the most vulnerable children in the UK.”

We have been asked to make it clear the Teletubbies will not be appearing at the Dartford event, they are supporting Barnardo's nationally.
