Children at Big Sky Nursery in Beccles really got a wiggle on when they decided to raise money for charity.

The babies and toddlers recently took part in a sponsored walk, creating caterpillars from craft materials, dressing up in red and green for a day to look like the Hungry Caterpillar from the well-known children’s book, and their mums joined with the nursery staff to hold a cake sale.

The series of events raised a total of £218 for Action for Children.

The nursery’s half a mile Wiggle Walk included a bit of train spotting on Beccles railway bridge and hunting for caterpillars along The Avenue.

Big Sky Nursery’s manager Leanne Clarke said: “Each year we raise money for a children’s charity and this year we chose the Giant Wiggle because we knew the children would have a lot of fun wiggling and giggling their way through the week. We’re really grateful to their parents and carers too for getting into the spirit and making it such a success.”

Action for Children stages a national Giant Wiggle every year to raise money to help disadvantaged children across the UK.
