Tiny Tickers Heart Week

Hundreds of people from across the country come together every February to celebrate and honour heart heroes everywhere, by fundraising and raising awareness as part of Tiny Tickers Heart Week. We’d love to see you join in!

What is Heart Week?

Heart Week is Tiny Ticker’s annual celebration of heart heroes everywhere. It’s our chance to come together to help babies born with serious heart conditions, their families and the health professionals that care for them. Over the years we’ve seen individuals, companies, community groups and schools hold a range of fundraising activities. From crafting and cake sales to marathons and skydives, we’ve had it all – even dancing 25 miles across Scotland during one of the coldest weeks of the year!

How can I get involved?

You can celebrate heart heroes, raising money and awareness, in lots of different ways. From bake sales and coffee mornings to sponsored runs and skydives. Although we put a spotlight on all heart heroes during February you can hold a Heart Week event at any time – and we’ll send you some fundraising goodies to help.

Remember: although Tiny Tickers annual celebration of Heart Heroes, Heart Week, takes place every year in February – you can get involved all year round!

It’s never been more important to get involved

Congenital heart defects haven’t stopped for the coronavirus pandemic. Over the past two years, babies have been born with poorly hearts at a time when everything from scans and birth through to surgery and treatment has been disrupted. The support we provide to these babies, their families, and the health professionals that look after them has never been more important. 

Babies with poorly hearts need us – and they need you too.

Meet Emma, Perry and heart baby Barney

 “I wanted to share our story because when we found out about Barney’s CHD, we took great comfort in reading other parents’ stories and it helped prepare us for what was to come. There’s no doubt about it, it’s not an easy road, and we are some of the lucky ones, however on a positive note it has put us in touch with other parents who have been a huge support. We’ll be forever grateful to Tiny Tickers for making that happen.”

Heart mum, Emma
