Thank you for the support at this year’s Tiny Lives Charity Ball

This December will see the return of the Tiny Lives Annual Charity Ball. The evening promises to be a fabulous event with a spectacular programme of fundraising activities.

None of it would be possible without the generous help of so many local businesses, so we just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who so generously donated.
