Tots in Spalding were up for the challenge of helping other children by forming ‘a very wiggly conga’.

The sponsored event at St Thomas’s Road Methodist Church in Spalding brought together under-fives.

They raised funds for vulnerable children, young people and families in the event held by Action for Children and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Action for Children’s Disability Lincolnshire Service teamed up with The World of Eric Carle to host the ‘giant wiggle’ to celebrate the UK’s best-selling children’s book.

The giant caterpillar conga lines encouraged youngsters to help others and fed their imaginations through storytelling and creative activities.

Jane Tarrant, children’s services practitioner at Action for Children’s Disability Lincolnshire service, said: “The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a firm favourite at our centre so we were really excited to be hosting a Giant Wiggle.

“We wanted to celebrate Eric Carle’s beloved book by encouraging our children to get active and have fun.”

Last year more than 32,000 children from nearly 800 schools raised £80,000.
