Eliot Kennedy, who has written songs for artists including Take That, Bryan Adams, Spice Girls, Boyzone and Celine Dion, was inspired to write the song after learning about the charity through the ‘Take That Back to Where It All Began’ concert and campaign, organised by passionate Take That supporter Victoria Hastings, to raise funds for Tiny Lives, which took place in front of a packed-out crowd at the Newcastle City Hall on 2 November 2017.

Eliot said of his inspiration, ‘The song ‘Tiny Life’ was written after many chats with Victoria, and sensing her passion as a parent, the unconditional love she feels for her kids, like we all do, the common connection we as humans share when we are finally aware just how incredible a miracle life is, when we are gifted with a child. It doesn’t always go easy though, and that’s what The Tiny Lives Trust is all about. So for them I wrote this song’.

‘Tiny Life (Voices for Tiny Lives)’ is available to download now from iTunes, Amazon and Google Play (click below), with all proceeds going directly to Tiny Lives Trust.

Family and friends came together to honour Jaylen and Jenson’s memory while raising funds which will help support babies, families and staff on the neonatal/special care baby unit at the RVI.

Jaylen and Jenson’s family and friends held a fundraising day in November at Wallsend Labour Club raising the amazing amount of £900.  Everyone had a great day and Paw Patrol even made a special appearance, you can see how happy this made Jaylen and Jenson’s big brother and cousin in the photo below.

Thank you to everyone who made this day possible.

Thank you Rachel!

We had a very special visitor recently as Rachel came in to see the team and we got a chance to catch up and thank her for her amazing fundraising for Tiny Lives, in loving memory of her mum Ruth.

Rachel has been a life-long supporter of Tiny Lives and has worked amazingly hard to raise the incredible amount of £6,181.17 for Tiny Lives through fundraising evenings.

Racheal Fundraising 2017

Rachel and her family support Tiny Lives in loving memory of Rachel’s mum, Ruth, and the care which was given to Rachel, Ruth and dad Brian while Rachel was on the Special Care Baby Unit after birth.

It’s an honour for the Tiny Lives Team to know Rachel and get to see her growing into a truly kind, caring and special young woman. Rachel and her family also support Macmillan Cancer Support in loving memory of Ruth, so have raised even more than the incredible amount of £6,181.17 in Ruth’s memory.
