Toddle Waddle Week is an opportunity for our youngest supporters to put their best feet forward for Meningitis Now, with all money raised being used to help save lives and rebuild futures. Running all this week, whatever the weather, all you need to do is grab some toddlers and get waddling.
The Eager Beavers nursery in Somerset has been a long-time supporter of Toddle Waddle and this year was no exception. Despite choosing a rainy day for the event, the youngsters had a brilliant time and raised more than £650.
“I am so proud as we are such a little group,” said nursery owner Annette Stacey. “The Toddle Waddle was a huge success even though it rained!”
In total over the years, our waddlers have raised more than £100,000 for us. If you want to join in the fun all you need to do is follow these simple steps:
Step 1 – Choose a date and venue
“I chose to hold mine around my local park, and then Mum invited my best friends back to our house for food, drinks and fun Toddle Waddle activities.”
“I chose to hold mine at the beach, and we loved building sandcastles afterwards!”
Step 2 – Invite your waddlers
All little people can take part, whether they’re in a pushchair, a wheelchair, crawling, waddling or walking. There’s no minimum distance, so go as long or as short as you like. You can hold it just for friends, or see if your nursery or club would like to get involved too.
Step 3 – Raise money for Meningitis Now
Your little ones can get sponsored or you could charge a small entry fee to take part. Why not hold a picnic at the end and ask for donations?
Step 4 – It’s time to Toddle Waddle
All your hard work has paid off – let’s get waddling!
Step 5 – Make it worthwhile
Well done! Thank you for completing your Toddle Waddle and helping us continue our fight against meningitis. Give everyone a certificate for taking part.
Most importantly… have fun, knowing each penny you raise will help save lives and rebuild futures.
