Youngsters can take part in a Peppa Pig muddy puddle walk at an east Norfolk care home and raise funds for Save the Children.

Ritson Lodge, in Lowestoft Road, Hopton, is holding the fundraising event on Sunday, April 29 between 10am and 4pm.

Children of all ages are welcome to take part and organisers say there will be muddy puddles indoors and outdoors which may lead to prizes for young ones, weather dependent.

There will also be a colouring competition, a cake sale, raffle and stalls.

Admission to the fundraising event is £2 per child.

A spokesman for the nursing home said: “Don’t forget your wellies. By taking part in the muddy puddle walk and raising money for Save the Children you can help vulnerable children around the world have a safe place to play and learn.”
