October 2014 update from Tiny Tickers

Our work to improve the detection, diagnosis and care of babies with congenital heart defects in the UK continues.

We are continuing our core work on training sonographers in NHS hospitals in the UK, and have exciting plans to extend the scope of our services in early 2014.

We continue to work to improve standards - as part of the NHS clinical reference group overseeing congenital cardiac services; as part of the patient and public engagement group for the current NHS England review of services; and as a member of the steering group for a national pulse oximetry testing scheme.

We are about to launch a major new national awareness campaign for mums-to-be - which promises to be one of the most exciting projects in our history. We'll be launching at The Baby Show - a three-day exhibition at Olympia in London in late October that has 20,000 visitors.

We are taking on more staff to help deliver the growth needed to provide these and other projects - we have recruited two part-time fundraising staff incuding new Head of Fundraising Harriett, and two interns joined us for the summer period under a scheme run by the University of Leeds careers service.

We continue to be moved and inspired by the experiences of CHD that our supporters share with us, and by the phenomenal fundraising efforts of many supporters. In recent months it has been running season - we've had supporters pull on a Tiny Tickers running shirt in a variety of events - including the world's largest half marathon, the Great North Run; the British 10k London race; and Run To The Beat. We're grateful to each and every fundraiser and those who donated to them.

Please feel free to follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@tinytickers) or via our website – www.tinytickers.org – and to give us feedback on info@tinytickers.org. We’re only able to do this work because of the generosity of our supporters, so thank you.

Many thanks for your support,

Jon
