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. Bake sales, car washes, board game nights, litter picking… the opportunities are endless and our fundraising pack is full to the brim with ideas to help inspire you. You can request one by completing the form at the bottom of this page.
Remember: although Tiny Tickers annual celebration of heart heroes, Heart Week, takes place every year in February – you can get involved all year round!

Meet baby Penelope
“When Penelope was born, I just remember how quiet she was.– Heart mum, Verity
I could see she was breathing, but she was just quiet, limp, small and blue. That’s how I remember her. They told me she was ok and just needed some oxygen because she had fluid on her lungs from not having a natural labour. I felt something was more seriously wrong. I had three children and never experienced a baby looking like this. They rushed her off to neonatal and my husband went with her. I will never forget lying in the recovery room, surrounded by new mums and their babies, and me, just alone.”
When Penelope was born, no-one knew she had life-threatening heart defects. After diagnosis, a long journey of surgery and followed.
Your Tiny Tickers Heart Week team is here to help! Pop us an email on email@example.com with any questions.
We look forward to hearing from you!
