Charity

The ITFA Board is proud to announce that this year it will be supporting Tommy’s; a charity that carries out pioneering research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth, and provides vital pregnancy health information to parents.

Tommy’s exists because 1 in 4 pregnancies will end in the loss of a baby. Tommy’s is supported by people like you who refuse to accept that a baby’s death is just “one of those things”.

Their target is to halve the number of babies that die during pregnancy or birth by 2030, but they can only carry on with their work through the support of people like you so that every parent has the best possible pregnancy to take home happy, healthy babies.

Parents need, and deserve, answers when their babies die, and Tommy’s wants to be able to provide answers to these questions. They believe in challenging the stigma surrounding baby loss. Every family should have access to clear, informative and accurate pregnancy advice.

Donate online until Tuesday 3rd September 2019 by clicking here. You will also be able to donate at the Gala dinner. Your donations will make a huge difference!

  • £10 could fund the cost of a Tommy’s midwife on a phone call to reassure pregnant mums and give life-saving advice.
  • £50 could fund a Tommy’s researcher to help find a cure for miscarriage.
  • £100 could pay for a blood pressure monitor at the Tommy’s miscarriage research centre to help spot which babies are in danger.

ITFA will match the total amount collected and the total amount raised will be announced at the Gala dinner. Let’s try to raise as much as we possibly can for Tommy’s to help them continue their research to save babies’ lives!
