We were invited to Downing St. for a drinks reception last Wednesday (18th May), for our contribution to pre and postnatal exercise and fundraising efforts for Tommy’s Baby charity.
Obviously flattered to be invited, we entered the famous gates, were cheked by security and once we were behind THAT door, were treated to wine and canapes!
Inside, we chatted to many people from both the corporate world linked with pre and postnatal life, plus some amazing couples who have had the misfortune to need to utilise the great research Tommy’s does that our funding goes towards. Especially Pinz and Jeet from Greenford who are looking forward to the birth of a Daughter soon- Best wishes.
Last year Buggyfit organised an event called ‘The Baby Race’ in conjuntion with Tommy’s and raised over £10,000. In September 2011 we have 5 venues for ‘The Baby Race’ , so are on track to raise £50k + (See www.tommys.org to see how you can get involved.
