My team and I eagerly await the launch of the Giving White Paper on Monday. I am hopeful that the White Paper will facilitate giving of money and time from individuals and corporates to charities throughout the UK.

We are a small charity committed to having a big impact on child health. In these times of austerity, now, more than ever we need your support, so in this Blog I’m asking you to embrace the ideas of The Big Society and get involved. There are so many ways for you to help, for example you might like to:

  • join Team Best Beginnings for our 10k run on July 10 - click on the link to find out more about the event and to watch a short film featuring TV Presenter Charlie Webster and our other runners last year – we had an absolute blast. Charlie is running with us again and we’d love you to join the team too.
  • become one of our regular donors, giving as little as £5.00 a month will make a real difference. £5.00 could enable us to give a copy of the new Small Wonders DVD to ten families with sick and premature babies.
  • join our online community by signing-up to our newsletter.
  • join our growing group of volunteers giving their skills and time to enable us to have more impact – whether you are interested in running local fundraising events or have experience in a number of areas including photography, camera-work, accounting, marketing, public affairs, design or fundraising we’d be delighted to hear from you.

To find out more look around the website or email me and my team at

We look forward to hearing from you!
