Barnardos launches the Big Toddle Colouring Competition
The Barnardos Big Toddle Colouring Competition, supported by The Irish Sun and Dublin’s Q102, has been officially launched. The competition is part of a wider ‘Building Brighter Futures’ partnership between Barnardos, The Irish Sun and Dublin’s Q102 which is designed to tell the story of the work Barnardos does with vulnerable children in Ireland. To take part in The Barnardos Big Toddle Colouring Competition, children just have to dig out their crayons or markers and get to work colouring in a wonderful illustration that has been created by Chris Judge, the well-known Irish illustrator and children’s picture book author. Copies of the illustration will be available in The Irish Sun newspaper on Saturday, 8 June and also online at thesun.ie, Q102.ie and barnardos.ie.
