Babies and toddlers from Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich took part in a Peppa Pig-themed danceathon to raise money for charity.

The boys and girls aged between six months and six years were sponsored to complete five challenges in their Babyballet class in support of Tommy’s – which funds research into stillbirth, premature birth and miscarriage.

Babyballet Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich west is joining children from across the country in the fundraiser aiming to raise £500,000 for Tommy’s.

Jane Brewin, chief executive of Tommy’s, said: “Danceathon is a great way for mums and dads to involve their little ones in a good cause.

“Tommy’s relies on the generosity and hard work of its supporters like babyballet to continue its pioneering research to prevent pregnancy complications. “We hope everyone taking part has an amazing time.”
