The duck pond at Peppa Pig World has proved a surprising source of fundraising for the official supported charity of Peppa Pig, Tommy’s. Supervisors at Paultons have been collecting change that has been thrown into the pond throughout the 2011 season and collected an amazing £1483.34 for the Tommy’s charity.
Rowan MacMillan, Corporate Fundraising Manager for Tommy’s visited Peppa Pig World last month to be presented with a giant cheque from staff members who helped collect the money from the pond each morning and Peppa Pig herself.
Rowan MacMillan said: ‘We are delighted to be supported by Paultons Park and were amazed to hear that such a large amount of money had come out of the duck pond. The amount raised will go towards our on-going medical research into pregnancy and birth, helping to ensure that more babies are born healthy.
’Tommy’s mission is to give every baby the best chance of being born healthy by funding medical research into the causes of premature birth, stillbirth and miscarriage, and provide a free information service that educates all parents to-be about health in pregnancy.
Paultons also supports Tommy’s by selling unique collectable Peppa Pig badges which are available Peppa’s Toy Shop that raised an additional £10,000 for the charity in 2011.
