During the National Children’s Activity Week (20 – 26th October) Tumble Tots will be encouraging children across the UK to help other children as they all join in the fun of the sponsored ‘Balance Challenge’.
The classes will be themed around Trick or Treat with Peppa Pig and as well as encouraging the children to get physically active, they’ll be raising funds for a great cause. Tumble Tots and Peppa Pig are proud to support the fabulous research work that Tommy’s the baby charity does. Tumble Tots hope to raise £30,000 which will go towards giving the best possible chance of having a healthy baby.
The children will be asked to carry out 10 different balances through each of the classes that fall that week in order to raise awareness of the importance of children being active from an early age. These classes will also be sprinkled with Peppa Pig images to celebrate the release of some new episodes.
Around 27% of children in the UK now overweight or obese and a third of children aged 2 -11 having less than 60 minutes of moderate activity each day it is more important than ever to introduce children to physical activity from as early age as possible.
Tumble Tots are also excited to reveal that customers will also be offered chance to win some fabulous Peppa Pig and Tumble Tots goodies. To enter simply go to the National Children’s Activity page at www.tumbletots.com
“We are really looking forward to our themed sessions around Trick or Treat and balancing with Peppa as she is such a family favourite, and to also be helping a fantastic charity like Tommy’s with our sponsored challenge. Our classes and campaigns such as National Children’s Activity Week plays such a important factor in encouraging physical activity from such an early age.” said, Nicola Parsons, Marketing Manager Tumble Tots UK Ltd.
