Tiny Lives Travel the World

The Marsden twins are less than two months old and have already inspired the Tiny Lives name to travel to Australia! Ashley Cowley was already on a personal mission to complete 50 separate Park Run courses and a half marathon is now supporting Tiny Lives in the process after J and D were born 17 weeks premature.

If you can bear the sunshine envy, keep up with Ashley’s adventures on his blog and read more about his story and his fundraising on Just Giving.

More pictures to come!

Support Ashley on his runs and his team mates in spirit, J and D, while they’re on their journey through Special Care #TeamMarsden!

Tesco Bank raised over £24k in the last year as we were their charity partner in 2014/2015.  It has been great working alongside the community team and other staff members at their events.



We were also nominated charity for P&G in 2014/2015 and they have raised over £29k for Tiny Lives, which is going to help support the Physiotherapist Post Tiny Lives supports.   P&G staff have been amazing and everyone at Tiny Lives cannot thank them enough.

At 4pm on Thursday 23rd April staff at Sintons LLP are changing their view of the world as they abseil down their building, The Cube, Barrack Road, Newcastle.

Brave staff members who are taking on this challenge have set up their Justgiving page and are encouraging friends and family to support them as much as they can.

Their aim is to beat their charity target this year for Tiny Lives and all the families and babies on the Special Care Baby Unit at the RVI.

Tiny Lives would like to wish them all, the greatest of luck and we will be waiting to say thank you at the bottom.   Happy Abseiling 🙂
