Between 8th and 14th May, there's going to be a special fundraising drive for the Save the Children charity and Salford nurseries, early years groups, families and children are being urged to sign up and take part.

Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddle Walk will see groups from all over the country jumping in muddy puddles, like Peppa Pig, and going on sponsored muddy walks. Save the Children has produced a free fundraising pack full of fun activities and ideas for people to choose which option will work best for them and their children.

Children can get sponsored to walk or splash in puddles at the park, or they can simply donate to join a muddy puddle walk...

"The extra money you raise could mean Save the Children can help get food to children who have to go to bed hungry every night" states Save The Children "You can be as creative as you like – ask for donations per puddle, or come up with your own challenge for your little ones. And don't forget to get your fellow teachers involved as well. You can even top up your total by baking and selling Muddy Puddle cupcakes..."

As well as Entertainment One's Peppa Pig, the fundraising campaign is being fronted by ace actress and Save the Children Ambassador, Ashley Jensen, star of amongst other shows Ugly Betty, Extras and Catastrophe, plus the Salford Star's favourite film, All Stars*...

"I'm encouraging everyone to get outside, come rain or shine, and help raise much needed funds for Save the Children" she says "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 the world's most vulnerable children have a brighter future" she adds "I've seen the charity's work first hand so know what a difference it makes. I'm proud to do my bit to help raise awareness and funds."

*The Salford Star loves one particular scene from All Stars so much that, in 2013, we named one of our prestigious annual awards in Ashley Jensen's honour – click here - and used the classic clip from the film again in 2014 – click here.
