Australian pre-schoolers are being invited to join their favourite little piggy, Peppa Pig, in a Muddy Puddle Walk to raise funds for Save the Children.

This winter, Australian children can slip on their gumboots and join Peppa Pig in getting all muddy while raising funds for other little ones, during Peppa Pig’s Muddy Puddle Walk for Save the Children!

By participating, pre-schoolers around the country will help support Save the Children’s work to give every last child the chance to learn, play and grow up healthy and happy.

Millions of children around the world are currently missing out on this due to factors including lack of access to health and education, abuse and neglect, and humanitarian emergencies.

There’s a whole week in which to host your own Muddy Puddle Walk, with the fundraising event running from 13-19 August.

By taking part in a Muddy Puddle Walk, children will continue to discover how much fun it is to explore the world around them.

Nikki Kerridge from Save the Children said a Muddy Puddle Walk is easy to take part in, and the perfect excuse to explore the outdoors with your little ones.

“We hope everyone will get outside this winter, come rain or shine, and help raise much needed funds for Save the Children,” Nikki said.

“By jumping in muddy puddles like Peppa Pig and raising money for Save the Children you can help give disadvantaged children a brighter future.”

Families can sign up individually, and child care centres and playgroups can join in too. There are rewards for everyone, with surprises from Peppa Pig including certificates and stickers plus magazines, books and DVDs.
