If you are at the Thursday market today, Charlies Handbags and Purses donate £1.00 for every bag they sell to Tiny Tickers in memory of stall owner Jane Fowler’s grandaugter, Charlie Fisher.
Jane has raised £200 so far and this will be on going fund raising for Tiny Tickers, a charity set up to improve the early detection and care of babies with serious heart conditions.
Every year in the UK, 5,000 babies are born with congenital heart defects (CHD) with 3,000 having major CHD requiring surgery or a procedure in their first year of life. Tiny Tickers is working to improve early detection, so that more heart babies receive the care they need, avoid unnecessary illness and have the chance of a better start in life.
