babyballet and Peppa Pig have been fundraising for Tommy’s … babyballet stars have hopped, skipped and jumped to raise money for baby charity Tommy’s when they took part in the first ever Tommy’s ‘Danceathon’. Boys and girls aged 6 months – 6 years were sponsored to complete a Peppa Pig themed dance lesson to fund vital research into stillbirth, premature birth and miscarriage. The children, parents, teachers and franchisees have helped to raise a whopping £371,154.47 nationwide.
The money that these babyballet stars have raised for Tommy’s will help to fund vital research into stillbirth, premature birth and miscarriage at the 4 Tommy’s research centres across the UK. As well as this, Tommy’s provides advice and support for all parents-to- be to help them have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
The Danceathon, sponsored by Arla Big Milk, was the first ever time this event had taken place. Jane Brewin, CEO of Tommy’s, said:
“We’re thrilled to have worked with babyballet and to raise the incredible amount of money that we have done through the Tommy’s Danceathon. Tommy’s are the largest charity funding research into the causes of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth.
Partnering with babyballet has helped us move one step closer to achieving our goal of halving the number of babies that die during pregnancy or birth by 2030. The money that was raised will make a real difference to families across the UK and we are so grateful to every single babyballet star for supporting us in our efforts.”
