DOZENS of nursery children danced to the tune of the Peppa Pig song to raise money for a charity that helps save babies’ lives.
About 50 boys and girls from Busy Bees Nursery in North Harbour Business Park made strumming actions on imaginary guitars, stamped their feet and waved their hands as they took part in the Peppa Pig Bing Bong Dance.
All of the youngsters aged between six months and five years are still collecting sponsorship money which they will donate to Tommy’s, which funds medical research into the causes of premature birth, stillbirth and miscarriage.
The charity also provides a free information service that educates all parents-to-be about health in pregnancy.
Helen Tucker, nursery manager at Busy Bees, said: ‘It was a fantastic event and the children enjoyed themselves.
‘We’ve been working hard to get as much support as we can, and raise lots of money for Tommy’s.
‘We’re very pleased we can help make a real difference and contribute to helping women through difficult pregnancies.’
Jane Brewin, chief executive of Tommy’s, added: ‘We’re thrilled to be involved with the Peppa Pig Bing Bong Dance, which ultimately will help fund research so that more mums can enjoy a healthy pregnancy.’
All the children who took part in the dance will be presented with a certificate and stickers, and further Peppa Pig goodies will be awarded to children who raise more than £20. To find out more about the charity visit tommys.org.
