The Giant Wiggle – Action for Children event.

Join The Very Hungry Caterpillar™ by taking part in The Giant Wiggle to help vulnerable children and Action for Children

Leading UK charity Action for Children is teaming up with The World of Eric Carle™ and the most read children’s book in the UK, The Very Hungry Caterpillar™, to get children’s centres, nurseries and other groups throughout the country to host Giant Wiggle events during the week of 21st-27th March 2016.

The sponsored walks will bring children together to wiggle like caterpillars in giant conga lines and encourage them to play and develop their imaginations through storytelling and creativity.

All money raised through the event will support Action for Children’s work across the country to help vulnerable children, young people and families in the heart of communities.

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 2015, more than 54,000 children took part in nearly 950 Giant Wiggle events across the country. Over the past two years, The Giant Wiggle has raised more than £149,000 for Action for Children.

Laura Hamilton said: “The Giant Wiggle is a fantastic opportunity for children to get involved with a great cause to help other youngsters, having a blast with friends and family at the same time. My little ones and I will be taking part – join us and The Very Hungry Caterpillar for all the fun!”
