MEMBERS of Barkway playgroup toddled around the village last week in support of Barnado's.

Most of the children at the playgroup took part in the toddle, at Barkway recreation ground, accompanied by parents and playgroup mascot Barkway Bear.

Jo Barker, from Barkway Playgroup, said: "We take part in the toddle every year.

"We do a lot of events to raise money for the playgroup itself, so it's nice to do something for charity as well.

"As Barnardo's work with children it seems like an appropriate cause for us."

Sponsorship money is still coming in for the toddle, which raised around £80 last year.

Jo added: "We like to tell the children a little bit about Barnardo's, and that the money they get in sponsorship is going to children who have less than they do.
