Gants Hill dragons show their claws to aid charity fund
Lions, tigers and other wild creatures were out in force as children and their parents dressed up to take part in a sponsored “toddle”.
On Wednesday last week parents and toddlers from the the parents and toddler group Jolly Dragons, which meets at St George’s Church in Gants Hill, took part in the Big Toddle in aid of children’s charity Barnardo’s.
Toddler leader, Marion Gardner, said: “The kids and their parents enjoyed it a lot. Everyone had a lovely time and were glad that it was all for a good cause. Children were given certificates and medals for the good work they did.”
Barnardo’s works directly with more than 100,000 children, young people and their families every year.
The money raised from the walk will be used to train support workers, pay for sensory sessions for disabled children and buy outdoor play equipment for children in bed and breakfast accommodation.
