By Katie, Vicky, Aimee, Anne, Jon & Kym | Team Tiny Tickers
Tiny Tickers is now on a slightly different path to the one we were expecting as 2020 – our 20th anniversary year – rang in. Although the UK is currently facing a huge public health emergency, a baby is born with a serious heart condition every 2 hours. That fact remains. We are here to help but only with your support.
From 8 February to 14 February 2021 we'd love if you would join us in celebrating heart heroes everywhere by fundraising and raising awareness as part of Heart Week 2021.
Though we don't know what the world will look like in February, we know that it's never been more important to help babies affected by congenital heart disease.
From tea parties to dress down days, baby cinema and yoga classes, to sponsored silences and office activities, we’ve had it all. Even walking across the Forth Bridge on the coldest day of the year and taking a leap of faith with a Heart Week skydive!
Whether you raise a little or a lot, Heart Week is the chance for you to use your imagination and come together with friends, family, colleagues and the community to show your support for Heart Heroes everywhere. Dress down days may be so last year, but there are lots of virtual tips on our website here.
When you sign up to take part you'll receive a free Heart Week toolkit full to the brim with ideas, advice and resources to help you have fun whilst fundraising!
We don’t know what the world will be like in February so some of your ideas might have to look a little different from previous years. Above all else please follow government guidelines when making your plan.
Thank you for helping us ensure that every baby born with a heart defect has a fighting chance
