A group of busy bees wiggled their way to raise hundreds of pounds for charity in a celebration of the classic children’s book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Children from Busy Bees nursery, near St Albans Hospital, teamed up with charity Action for Children to walk their way to raising more than £200.
The event saw toddlers create conga caterpillars in a bid to raise the funds while also enjoying storytelling and other caterpillar fun.
Faye Dutton, nursery manager at St Albans Hospital Busy Bees, said: “We all had a fantastic time and are proud that we took part in the Busy Bees Giant Wiggle in support of Action for Children.
“Parents and staff were excited to take part in the sponsored walk and see our little ones get wiggling before enjoying some creative activities, and of course, sitting down to hear the timeless tale, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.”
