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.

HUGE COST OF SHUTTING SALFORD DISABLED CHILDREN’S HOME QUESTIONED BY UNISON

Star date: 24th November 2017

SUGGESTED COST OF £250,000 EACH TO MOVE CHILDREN FROM THE GRANGE

Salford City UNISON has written to the Salford Mayor and councillors about the huge cost of moving children from The Grange to placements outside the borough, which it suggests could be as high as £250,000 per child.

Salford Mayor, Paul Dennett, made the decision to shut the city's only home for disabled children but UNISON reckons it would cost more to close the facility than to keep it open. Meanwhile, solicitors representing one of the young people at the Grange are awaiting a judge's decision for a judicial review into the closure.

DISABLED SALIX HOMES TENANT TOLD TO FIND NEW PROPERTY

Salix Homes tenant, Thomas West, has a worsening polio condition that meant the stairlift at his house in Weaste needed alterations but then kept breaking down, leaving him trapped upstairs for three months at one point.

Thomas has been advised by Salford Council that he needs a vertical lift fitted but Salix Homes state it is against their policy and have asked him to consider moving to 'more suitable accommodation'... "I don't want to move" he says, suspecting financial concerns are being put before his needs.

COURT THROWS OUT SALFORD SCHOOL FINE FOR MUM WHO KEPT SERIOUSLY ILL SON AT HOME

Star date: 22nd November 2017

HIS BROTHER HAD ALREADY DIED OF SAME ILLNESS BUT 'HEARTLESS' SCHOOL FINED MUM FOR UNAUTHORISED ABSENCES

"He wasn't going out enjoying himself; he was actually at home trying to breathe..."

A judge at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court has thrown out a fine given by Buile Hill Visual Arts College to mum, Nicola Newns, for 'unauthorised absences' of her son, Jacob, despite him suffering from the same serious illness that tragically took the life of his younger brother, Ben, a few years ago.

Court papers showed that the school complained it took them two hours once to contact Nicola – when she was actually in an ambulance with Jacob on the way to A&E; and then couldn't contact her for four days...when she was sat by his bed in intensive care "Praying he gets better".

SALFORD SALIX HOMES DISABLED RESIDENT SUICIDE ATTEMPT AS CRIES FOR HELP IGNORED

Star date: 21st November 2017

'HORRIFIED' PARENTS TELL OF SALIX 'TURNING BACK' ON DISABLED SON 

"We can't understand how anyone can let a company do this to a vulnerable person forcing him to try and take his own life..."

The parents of a disabled man living in a Salix Homes flat off Blackfriars Road have written to the Salford City Mayor, Salford MP and local councillors after their son tried to commit suicide in a motorway car park.

The email states that Salix refused to help deal with anti-social behaviour and disability access issues, and "refused to accept that he is even disabled" despite him receiving full PIP... "The fact that his urgent cries for help have been ignored and his landlords have turned their back on him and instructed solicitors rather than provide the help that he urgently needs is horrifying".
