The first Peppa Pig muddy puddle walk held in Stornoway has been ranked the seventh most successful in the UK by the Save the Children charity which received the proceeds.

Three-year-old Bethany Macleod was the driving force behind the new event, which was held in April in the Castle grounds. Over 100 young children walked and toddled the half-mile course along with their parents and the cartoon characters George and Peppa Pig.

After all the funds had been counted, a tremendous toddling total of £1184.82 had been raised for the charity’s work supporting children across the world.

Now Bethany’s mum Michelle has received an email from Save the Children UK to say the Stornoway Peppa Pig Muddy Puddle Walk was the 7th highest Muddy Puddle fundraiser in the whole UK.

The good news has been the inspiration for a new round of planning. As Michelle posted the news on Wednesday (October 24th) her closing question was: “Who’s in to create an even bigger one next year?”
