Children at Bolton School Nursery were thrilled to splash through puddles, squelch through mud and explore the world around them – all to raise money for charity.
The Peppa Pig’s Muddy Puddle Walk took place on the Boys’ Division sports field, where the whole of the Nursery enjoyed a messy obstacle course created by members of staff. Parents and grandparents also came along to join in the fun with the little ones.
Lots of children wore Peppa Pig ears they had made as they weaved through logs, crawled through a den-tunnel, hopped across ‘puddle’ stepping-stones, and got their wellies muddy and sandy. There were also lots of different kinds of tyre ‘puddles’ to climb into. However, the real water puddles were the stars of the show and the children loved jumping in and stamping their feet to create huge splashes!
There was a wonderful atmosphere as the First Steps babies, the Tweenies, and children from the Caterpillar and Butterfly rooms had fun together on their messy Muddy Puddle Walk.
Donations from Nursery children and their families raised over £1,000 for Save the Children!
This unique fundraiser was launched by Save the Children and Entertainment One’s (eOne) Peppa Pig. Children were inspired to splash in the mud like Peppa herself between 8 and 14 May to raise money for the charity. The money raised will help to make life better for children around the world, supporting Save the Children’s work to give every child the chance to learn, play and grow up healthy and happy. Millions of children around the world are missing out on this just because of where they are born.
Vicky Fallon, Head of Community Giving at Save the Children, said: “We are thrilled that the children at Bolton School Nursery are taking part in their very own Muddy Puddle Walk! By jumping in muddy puddles like Peppa Pig and raising money for Save the Children – they will help the world’s most vulnerable children to have a brighter future.”
