Project Report | Jun 7, 2023
You Made It Happen

By Kym Kitching | Fundraising Manager

We are delighted to share with you our latest Annual Report & Accounts for our last financial year. 

When you donate to Tiny Tickers your impact is felt across the UK by babies with CHD, their families and the health professionals who care for them. Our little charity continues to thrive thanks to your generous support - and we really can’t thank you enough. We continue to weather the impact that COVID and the cost of living crisis has had on the charity sector and remain incredibly grateful to all those who have supported us; in turn allowing us to keep supporting those affected by congenital heart defects at their time of need.

Your support has helped us to… 

Place 489 pulse oximetry machines in maternity units across the UK. Pulse Oximetry machines can indicate possible heart or respiratory issues quickly and effectively by measuring the amount of oxygen in the blood. Low oxygen levels can be a key sign that a baby could have a critical heart defect. Not every baby will be born visibly displaying signs and symptoms and without this machine serious defects could go undetected. 

Train 2299 sonographers to be better able to spot heart defects during 20-week pregnancy scans. One third of serious heart defects currently go undetected before birth, therefore it is vital that we train and educate as many sonographers and health professionals as possible. 2022 was our best year for face-to-face training so far.

Hold 12 parent-to-be six week virtual peer support groups, 10 six week virtual peer support groups for parents and 20 regular virtual drop-in sessions. At Tiny Tickers our message for heart parents is always “you are not alone.” The ability to speak to others going through, or who have been through, a similar situation is often a very valuable source of support for a lot of heart parents.

As a small charity, nothing we have achieved, or will achieve, is possible without the generosity of our amazing supporters, including you. 

We hope you find the enclosed report of interest, and that it helps deliver a picture of how your funding helps make our vision a reality - we want every baby with CHD to have the best chance of survival and the highest possible quality of life.
