Wiggly children have been wriggling around to help raise money for charity.

Youngsters at children’s centres around the county have been taking part in a wiggly conga for the fundraising event held by Action for Children and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Toddlers, children and their parents took part in four events this week for the fundraising challenge involving children’s centres around the UK.

First to kick off proceedings were Bedlington Children’s Centre on Monday where around 30 children took part in a wiggle along in giant caterpillar conga lines.

There were also events at Morpeth, Ashington, Newbiggin, Lynemouth and Choppington.

The events also tied in with The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day on March 20, which marks the 45th anniversary of Eric Carle’s book and Action for Children’s 145th year.

Gill Physick, children’s services manager at Bedlington Children’s Centre, said: “The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a firm favourite at our children’s centre and we were really excited about celebrating important anniversaries for both the book and Action for Children by taking part in the Giant Wiggle.”

All funds raised will be donated to Action for Children, supporting its work with vulnerable children, young people, and families.
