Join Bethany at Bayhead Park on Saturday, April 28th, for the first ever Stornoway Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddle Walk for Save the Children
This Spring will see the return of the UK’s muddiest fundraising event for little ones – Peppa Pig’s Muddy Puddle Walk for Save the Children.
And on Saturday, April 28th, children in Stornoway will have the opportunity to take part thanks to the idea from Peppa Pig superfan, three year old Bethany Macleod, from Stornoway.
“Bethany wanted to do something to help other children who are in need, those who don’t have enough to eat or somewhere safe and warm to live,” said Bethany’s mum Michelle.
“The funds raised will go to the local branch of Save the Children to assist children affected by famine and war, refugees and those in need closer to home. We hope local families will support the event and dig deep for Save the Children.”
Last year Peppa Pig’s Muddy Puddle Walk for Save the Children saw 160,000 youngsters across the UK take part – raising an incredible £243,000 for the charity’s vital work.
A first for Stornoway, the local Muddy Puddle Walk on Saturday, April 28th, will see all tackle a half-mil walk from Bayhead Playpark, turning into Lews Castle Grounds at Porter's Lodge, and continuing past the rugby pitch and left on to the YM Bridge before heading back to the Park.

By raising money for Save the Children, local children will help support their work to give every last 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.
Sophie Pirouet, Fundraising Campaigns Manager at Save the Children, said: “We hope everyone will get outside this Spring, come rain or shine, and help raise much needed funds for Save the Children.
“It’s so easy to take part and it’s the perfect excuse to explore the outdoors with your little ones. By jumping in muddy puddles like Peppa Pig and raising money for Save the Children you can help give children a brighter future.”
Peppa Pig’s Muddy Puddle Walk for Save the Children will begin at 11am at Bayhead Playpark, entry is by donation on the day. All children must be accompanied by an adult and children are the responsibility of parent/carer at all times.
The Muddy Puddle Walk is open to all ages and Peppa Pig inspired outfits are encouraged. There may even be some special guests leading the walk on the day!
