Toddle Waddle

The children at Dalintober ELC had a fun day out while raising money for Barnardo’s. The children walked from Dalintober Primary School to the ‘Donkey Playpark’. They had their snack and a wee play there before heading back to the school. They were very good at following road safety rules and kept us all in check! We raised £423.60. A big thank you to all who sponsored and help us on the day.
