Little legs made light work of a fundraising toddle, as more than £1,300 was raised in Lowestoft.
Children dressed up as animals and took part in a half mile walk to raise money for vulnerable children during last summer's animal themed Big Toddle for Barnardo's.
And with youngsters in Lowestoft dressing up as tigers and giraffes it helped to raise £1,317.55 for the UK's oldest and largest children's charity. Nurseries and parents are now signing up to take part in this year's Big Toddle, which runs from June 19 to June 25 and has the theme of 'colours'.
The Big Toddle is marking its 20th anniversary this year by teaming up with Teletubbies, which is also celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Barnardo's South-East and Anglia Regional Director, Jonathan Whalley, said: '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.'
