Tommy’s, the miscarriage and stillbirth charity, and Jo Jingles, the children’s music, singing and movement experience, hosted Jinglethon events in Aylesbury last week, supported by children’s food company, Little Dish.

The series of Jinglethon events, taking place across the area at Jo Jingles classes, saw hundreds of local babies and toddlers aged 3 months to 5 years saving other babies’ lives by dressing up as nature explorers and being sponsored to participate in a fun musical explorers programme. Donations raised by the little ones will go to Tommy’s to fund further research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth.

Jinglethon hopes to raise £100,000. This could help up to 6,000 families visit Tommy’s National Centre for Miscarriage Research, and realise their dream of having a baby. At present, 1 in 4 women in the UK lose a baby during pregnancy or just after birth, and around 1 in every 27 babies are stillborn per year, equivalent to 10 babies a day. In addition, 684 babies are miscarried a day.

Jane Brewin, Chief Executive at Tommy’s has said, “Jinglethon is a great way for parents and carers to involve their little ones in a good cause. Tommy’s relies on the generosity and hard work of its supporters like Jo Jingles to continue its pioneering research to prevent pregnancy complications. We’re so grateful to everyone who took part.”

About Tommy’s

Tommy's funds research into pregnancy problems and provides information to parents. We believe it is unacceptable that one in four women lose a baby during pregnancy and birth. When a pregnancy fails or a baby dies, it causes devastation. Twenty-five years ago, frustrated at the lack of research that meant they could rarely tell families why their babies were dying, two obstetricians in St Thomas' Hospital in London were inspired to start a campaign for more research into pregnancy problems. Soon, their cause was taken up by others and a charity known as 'Tommy's' (after St Thomas' Hospital) was born. That was 1992. Today, we lead the way in maternal and fetal research in the UK.
