The Giant Wiggle encourages childrenin the South West to get active and help others
Leading charity Action for Children is teaming up with The World of Eric Carle and encouraging children’s centres, nurseries and groups for under-5s in the South West to host a Giant Wiggle on Thursday, March 19, 2015 to celebrate the UK’s most read children’s book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
The event will bring together under-5s to wiggle along in giant caterpillar conga lines, encouraging them to help others, and opening up their imaginations through storytelling and creative activities.
Brigitte Gater, UK West director of Children’s Services at Action for Children, said: “We want to celebrate Eric Carle’s beloved book by encouraging children to get active and have fun.
“By hosting a sponsored Giant Wiggle you will help us to support vulnerable children, young people and families in the heart of communities in the South West, and across the UK.”
Action for Children provides early years child development, learning and childcare services to thousands of tots throughout the UK, through its children and family centres.
In March 2014, more than 32,000 children from nearly 800 schools and nurseries took part in The Giant Wiggle, raising £80,000 for Action for Children.
