Children at Big Sky Nursery in Beccles put their wellies on and jumped in as many muddy puddles as they could find to raise money for charity.

The nursery held a party as part of national Peppa Pig Muddy Puddles week in aid of Save the Children.

Part of the Big Sky play area was used specially for digging and squelching in, and the nursery's Mud Kitchen got extra use as youngsters made mud pies for their parents.

Nursery manager Leanne Clarke said: 'This is the first fundraising we've held since the nursery opened last October and it was great. All the children love Peppa and they love being outside and jumping in puddles like she does, so we knew they would love it.

'It's part of the organisation's ethos to do things to benefit our community and everyone liked the idea that we were helping children while having fun.'
