Get ready for the wiggliest, most wonderful event of the year! We’re here to help you plan your Giant Wiggle event and here are the answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.

What’s in the Fundraising Pack?

Each pack is full of Very Hungry Caterpillar activity ideas, fundraising tips, and activity sheets. It also contains posters, a Collection Box and 70 x Very Hungry Caterpillar stickers – enough for everyone taking part!

Where does the Giant Wiggle take place?

You can hold your fundraising walk anywhere you like – at home, at nursery, in the library or a local park. Don’t forget to check the weather before your event. If the warm sun doesn’t come up – pop! – inside you go! You can have just as much fun on your wiggle walk indoors.

How can we raise money?

The Giant Wiggle is a fundraising walk. We suggest you ask everyone taking part to donate £2. 
Your Very Hungry Caterpillar fundraising pack is full of simple ideas to raise extra donations on the day too. In the past, our wigglers have held a sponsored reading of The Very Hungry Caterpillar™ and asked everyone to donate an extra £1 to enjoy. You could also hold a bake sale using The Very Hungry Caterpillar™ recipes which we’ll share with you. Careful not to get a stomach ache!
You can collect donations on the day or set up a JustGiving page to share with parents, friends and family. Get everyone involved in fundraising – it’s all part of the fun.

Does my Giant Wiggle walk have to be outside?

Not at all! Your little ones will can enjoy their fundraising walk inside or outside – it’s up to you. Your free Very Hungry Caterpillar fundraising pack is full of great activities to get ready for the walk. If you do decide to hold your walk outdoors, remember to keep an eye on the weather so you can ask children to bring rain jackets just in case. And if the warm sun doesn’t come up – pop! – inside you go.

How long should my walk be?

Your walk can be as short or long as you like. We suggest half a mile for older children, and some younger children might be happy just to wiggle as much as they can! Indoors or out, remember to check your route is safe and suitable for your little ones. Your fundraising pack is full of top tips for planning a fun wiggle walk.
