Between 8th and 14th May, there's going to be a special fundraising drive for the Save the Children charity and Salford nurseries, early years groups, families and children are being urged to sign up and take part.

Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddle Walk will see groups from all over the country jumping in muddy puddles, like Peppa Pig, and going on sponsored muddy walks. Save the Children has produced a free fundraising pack full of fun activities and ideas for people to choose which option will work best for them and their children.

Children can get sponsored to walk or splash in puddles at the park, or they can simply donate to join a muddy puddle walk...

"The extra money you raise could mean Save the Children can help get food to children who have to go to bed hungry every night" states Save The Children "You can be as creative as you like – ask for donations per puddle, or come up with your own challenge for your little ones. And don't forget to get your fellow teachers involved as well. You can even top up your total by baking and selling Muddy Puddle cupcakes..."

As well as Entertainment One's Peppa Pig, the fundraising campaign is being fronted by ace actress and Save the Children Ambassador, Ashley Jensen, star of amongst other shows Ugly Betty, Extras and Catastrophe, plus the Salford Star's favourite film, All Stars*...

"I'm encouraging everyone to get outside, come rain or shine, and help raise much needed funds for Save the Children" she says "It's so easy to take part and it's the perfect excuse to explore the outdoors with your little ones.

"By jumping in muddy puddles like Peppa Pig and raising money for Save the Children you can help the world's most vulnerable children have a brighter future" she adds "I've seen the charity's work first hand so know what a difference it makes. I'm proud to do my bit to help raise awareness and funds."

*The Salford Star loves one particular scene from All Stars so much that, in 2013, we named one of our prestigious annual awards in Ashley Jensen's honour – click here - and used the classic clip from the film again in 2014 – click here.

HOW IMAGE LED SALFORD TOWER BLOCK CLADDING CATASTROPHE

Star date: 26th June 2017

IMAGE OBSESSION AND CLADDING UNVEILED

Recently, Salford City Council has been obsessed by the image of the city, desperately trying to move away from the 'Dirty Old Town', to something like Milton Keynes on the Irwell.

Has this obsession with image and wrapping tower blocks in unsafe materials led, in line with other cities, to the current cladding catastrophe? Here the Salford Star documents what's been going on behind the fancy facades...

SALIX HOMES CLADDING TO BE REMOVED AFTER TESTS

After Salford Council announced it was removing cladding from nine Pendleton Together tower blocks, this afternoon Salix Homes has informed residents that it is removing cladding from Canon Hussey Court on the Islington Estate.

In a letter to residents, Salix states that "the cladding sample provided for Canon Hussey Court has been identified as a higher risk component". Work to remove "affected cladding" will begin this week. The Salford Star understands that cladding is also to be removed from other blocks.

NO TIMETABLE FOR THE REMOVAL OF CLADDING ON NINE SALFORD TOWER BLOCKS

Star date: 25th June 2017

IT COULD BE MONTHS BEFORE CLADDING REMOVED IN SALFORD

"There will be no waiting around in Salford whilst there are any questions about the safety of our residents..."

On Friday, Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett announced that cladding on nine Pendleton Together tower blocks was to be removed... "We take the safety of our residents very seriously and are taking immediate steps" he declared.

Yesterday, residents were told by Pendleton Together that the cladding will not be removed until replacement material is ready to go up – which could take months. And new fire safety advice has been issued, to leave not stay in the event of a fire.

SALFORD RESIDENTS BEING KEPT IN DARK OVER TOWER BLOCK DANGER

Star date: 24th June 2017

POTENTIALLY TOXIC CLADDING IN OVER A DOZEN SALFORD TOWER BLOCKS

At yesterday's press conference, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, said that removing cladding on the nine Pendleton tower blocks was the "right and moral thing to do". Yet Salford City Council knows every component in all cladding in the city which planning officers have passed, and has not disclosed this information.

The Salford Star has investigated, as far as it can, the cladding and materials used in tower block refurbishment and the results are frightening...Materials used on Magnolia Court, Sycamore Court and Mulberry Court should avoid "Exposed heat, flames and/or sparks"; Arthur Millwood Court and Canon Hussey Court are fitted with panels from the same manufacturer as Grenfell Tower, and there's more.
