A familiar face will be taking part in the Stornoway Muddy Puddle walk this year.

Peppa Pig is currently in training for the walk, which will be held on Saturday May 4 in aid of Save the Children.  

The walk is being organised by local mums in conjunction with the Lewis branch of Save the Children. The event is also being supported by the Bayhead Community Association and with sponsorship from the Western Isles Lottery.

The Multimedia Unit at Comhairle nan Eilean Siar are also assisting this year by providing a Gaelic element to some of the resources for the event.

Organiser, Michelle Macleod, said: “We are very excited to be holding another Peppa Pig Muddy Puddle Walk in Stornoway and we hope that families will come along on May 4th for a fun morning in the park while also raising vital funds for Save the Children.

“We are very grateful for all the support we received at last year’s event from the community and also local businesses.

“The sponsorship from the Western Isles Lottery means we can have our very special guests Peppa and George Pig leading our walk once again and we are very grateful to them for that support.

“Entry is by donation on the day so please come along and join us!”

This year’s Walk will set off from Bayhead Playpark at 11am and will follow the same route as last year – proceeding to Porter’s Lodge and turning left into the Castle Grounds along to the YM bridge and then back to the Park. The route is suitable for all ages and abilities.

A JustGiving page has also been set up for the event for those who wish to sponsor their little ones: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/michelle-macleod5
