Strictly Stars Meet Peppa Pig!
Peppa Pig and Strictly’s Lilia Kopylova & Darren Bennett will be at The Entertainer toy store in Birmingham Bullring on Saturday 23rd September to help raise money for Baby Lifeline!
Baby Lifeline has partnered with The Entertainer to raise funds for its £5 million Monitoring for Mums appeal. Families can take part in Peppa Pig themed dancing, games and competitions in-store on 23rd September 2017 from 11am-5pm. Children will be able to meet Peppa Pig from 11am until 4.30pm and get involved in Move with Peppa sessions, which encourage pre-schoolers to be active through Peppa Pig themed physical activity programmes. The sessions will take place every 30 minutes from 11:30am until 5pm.
The Entertainer will support the charity’s fundraising by donating proceeds from sales across all of its 138 stores. Twenty-five pence from every Peppa Pig toy product sold in-store will be donated to the appeal in addition to one pound from the sale of special edition Peppa Pig branded reusable bags.
As well as meeting Peppa Pig and Lilia Kopylova, who is an ambassador for the Monitoring for Mums appeal, visitors to the store can get involved in dancing, games and other fun activities. There will also be a competition to win one of four family tickets to the Peppa Pig Live stage shows. Similar activities will be taking place across all of The Entertainer’s UK stores from the 18th September and will run until 18th October.
The Entertainer is also running an online draw to win a VIP family pass to Paultons Park in Hampshire, home of Peppa Pig World, including a meet and greet with Peppa Pig and a one night stay at the Chewton Glen 5* luxury hotel and spa with breakfast and dinner. Entries open on the 14th September and run until 18th October, with money raised from entries donated to the Monitoring for Mums appeal.
Judy Ledger, founder and Chief Executive of Baby Lifeline, said: “We launched the Monitoring for Mums appeal last year in response to the high number of applications we receive from NHS maternity units for vital baby monitoring equipment and training for staff members. Equipment funding requests have so far totalled more than £5 million and the figure keeps growing. Since it was launched, more than £200,000 worth of equipment and training has been provided to hospitals across the country through the Monitoring for Mums appeal. We’re really excited by the partnership with The Entertainer and hope it will provide a further funding boost to the appeal.”
Emily Moore, store manager at The Entertainer in Birmingham, said: “We’re really happy to be teaming up with Baby Lifeline to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause and hope that those shopping in Birmingham or elsewhere in the UK on the 23rd September will stop by one of our stores to join in the Peppa Pig fun and support the charity.”
