Crowds gathered on the village green in Barkingside to cheer on a group of toddlers taking part in their nursery’s 17th Big Toddle for children’s charity Barnardo’s.
Children from Peter Pan's Day Nursery in Thomas Barnardo Way donned animal-themed outfits for the annual fundraiser on Tuesday (June 18), joining thousands of groups around the UK in supporting the charity's work with vulnerable children, young people and families.
Debbie White from Peter Pan's Day Nursery said: "It was a great day and the children had a lot of fun. They enjoyed meeting Big Todd and dressing up for the occasion and raising lots of money for Barnardo's."
