Join the Gro Company for a family fundraiser in Haldon Forest this Autumn!

Whether you’re pushing a pram, riding on your grown-up’s shoulders, holding tight to a little hand, stomping in puddles or running from tree to tree, join The Gro Company for a fundraising walk and fun day to raise money for The Lullaby Trust.

On the 30th September Exeter based nursery brand, The Gro Company, is inviting you to join them for a wild adventure at Haldon Forest. Families, friends, grandparents, carers, brothers, sisters and babies will come together to walk the “Gruffalo Trail”, a gentle 1.5 mile path through tall trees and rolling countryside. After exploring the trail (and spotting a Gruffalo and his forest friends using The Forestry Commission’s augmented reality app!) participants can take part in a whole host of fun activities including face painting, craft, a bouncy castle (weather dependent) and a Gro Company Sample Sale. 

By joining in with the Little Legs Walk you will be supporting The Lullaby Trust, the leading UK charity dedicated to the research and prevention of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). The Charity provides specialist support for bereaved families, promotes expert advice on safer baby sleep, as well as supporting research to understand why five babies a week still die from SIDS.

So get your wellies ready and sign up here.
