· Colouring sheets, face painting and many other activities to keep the little one entertained all day.

The event starts at 10.30am with story time and the toddle waddle begins at 11am. There will be special prizes for the best dressed toddler as well.

Centre Manager, Nick Brooks, said: “At Martin Mere we feel that it is important to work with local community groups to help raise money for other charities as well as allowing a wider audience that may never have visited Martin Mere enjoy what we have to offer. Wetland centres are bursting with new life at the moment and it is a perfect place for a family day out, get up close to British and exotic birds in beautiful surroundings, with safe dedicated play areas and a full programme of summer activities. Coming along to this event will give toddlers an opportunity to start an enjoyment of nature at an early age.”

The Meningitis Trust understands how meningitis and septicaemia can change people’s lives in an instant. The suddenness of the disease can lead to confusion, feelings of isolation and disbelief. The Trust is an advisory, guidance and support service for families coping with this disease and the aftermath.

The cost to take part is £3 per toddler. To receive a sponsorship pack please call us on 01704 891220 or email [email protected], or simply arrive on the day and take part. For further information please visit
