Schools and groups can include the Bunny Hop as part of their art and PE lesson, outdoor time or as part of their daily exercise routine.

Taking part in the Bunny Hop event is easy.

Children can hop into action any time throughout April.

Just choose your time, date and sponsored walk route or venue and you're ready to go!

The Bunny Hop is a great way for children to get outside, get active and help to raise money for their local NHS charity.
