12 Jun Rebekah Vardy toddles with the Teletubbies to raise vital funds for thousands of vulnerable children
New Barnardo’s ambassador Rebekah Vardy joined forces with the Teletubbies at the Barnardo’s Big Toddle to raise money to support vulnerable children.
Rebekah, of I’m a Celebrity fame, put her best foot forward with her daughter Sophia, three, Po from the Teletubbies and more than 100 under-fives and their families at the public launch of the Barnardo’s Big Toddle at Dudley Zoo.
The Big Toddle sees thousands of under-fives and their families taking part in a short sponsored walk to raise money for Barnardo’s vital services. For the second consecutive year the Big Toddle is run in partnership with the much-loved CBeebies TV show, Teletubbies.
This year’s theme is “Nature”, with lots of opportunities for creative dressing up as animals, insects, flowers or even jungle creatures. By signing up to the Big Toddle you can access exclusive nature-themed early years learning resources.
This summer parents, carers and playgroups are encouraged to register to organise their own Toddle event during Toddle week from 18th to 24th June but toddles can be held at any time. This could include holding a community Big Toddle, one for families and friends or one organised by a local nursery or primary school.
Three public Toddles are planned for this year; Dudley Zoo held the first two on June 12th and 13th with another set to take place at Blackpool Zoo on June 19th.
Rebekah, who attended the first of the Dudley Zoo Toddles, was delighted to take part in the event and show her support for Barnardo’s, as she has only recently signed up to become an ambassador alongside her England football star Jamie Vardy.
