POOR Incy Wincy Spider had a torrid time as he slipped down the water spout to his doom.

But the spider’s grisly end was lost on the beaming toddlers singing the popular nursery rhyme.

The 14 tots joined their parents and grandparents in Old Town’s Christ Church Community Centre for a morning of singing, stories and dance.

Organised by children’s entertainers Jo Jingles, the event saw the children help raise funds for Tommy’s.

The national charity funds research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth.

On an overcast morning, the children brought a touch of sun to Old Town as they dressed as everything from moneys and lions to jungle explorers for the sponsored event.

Susan Mulrain, of Jo Jingles, dressed in a desert explorer-style suit for the “Jinglethon” event.

She said: “When I found out about the really beneficial work and research that Tommy’s undertakes it was easy to get motivated to raise as much money as possible for them.

“I’m delighted to see all my Jo Jingle classes helping to raise funds for Tommy’s so that they can continue to support families and undertake crucial research.”

Wanborough mum Charlotte Minall, 36, was singing along with animal-loving 18-month-old son Jameson. “It’s brilliant,” she said. “We’re having an amazing time.”

The Old Town event is one of dozens taking place across the country, raising £100,000 in sponsorship for Tommy’s from the events.

The Jinglethon is also supported by children’s food company Little Dish. Founder Hillary Graves said: “We are delighted to take part in this year’s Jinglethon and to support Tommy’s important research helping more people realise their dream of becoming parents.”
