Childcare students at Leeds City College were among those taking small steps for a giant cause when they helped out at Barnardo’s Big Toddle.
A group from the Level 2 Children’s and Young People’s Workforce course at Beeston Campus lent a hand at the annual event, in which hundreds of toddlers took part in a sponsored half-mile walk at Temple Newsam.
This year’s fairy-tale fancy dress theme saw the students don tiaras, wings, wands as they helped meet and greet participants, acted as marshals and handed out medals. It was the fourth year students have been involved in supporting the event.
Director for Barnardo’s Yorkshire Steve Oversby said: “The students did a wonderful job, they were supportive and really enthusiastic. On behalf of Barnardo’s and the children that we work with who will benefit from the money raised at the event, I would like to say a huge thank you.”
All money raised will be used to help local children who are supported by Barnardo’s – such as those who are living in poverty, who are disabled or who have been abused.
Health and Caring Services Senior Tutor Emma Langford said: “The Big Toddle is a great event for the students to be involved with; there is plenty of practical experience of dealing with babies and small children as well as it being a lot of fun and for a very good cause.”
