The Let's get baby friendly Awards 2012 - winners and ceremony

On Friday 16 March 2012 we announced the winners of our annual Let’s get baby friendly Awards, at London's Landmark Hotel. The ceremony was hosted by David and Carrie Grant, and awards were presented by celebrities including Lee Mead, Nancy Sorrell, Samantha Bond, Natasha Hamilton and Terri Dwyer.

There were laughter and tears on the day as we paid tribute to the friends, families and health professionals who have offered vital support to those who have suffered pregnancy complications or the loss of a baby.

The ceremony was a huge success with Tommy’s supporters coming from far and wide to celebrate with us. It was a glamorous affair as celebrities glided across the red carpet in six-inch stilettos and guests sipped champagne at the drinks reception before heading through to the stunning ballroom for a delicious three-course meal courtesy of the lovely Landmark Hotel. Even Bearemy from Build-A-Bear Workshop popped in to surprise our incredible Champion Children – Skye, Oliver and Isla. All the winners are an inspiration to us all and it was such a pleasure to meet them all.

The Awards also recognise the organisations that are making a real difference to families' lives all over the UK and ensuring parents’ needs are met. This year, a record number of votes were cast throughout January and February 2012: with 205,799 votes cast in total, this was an almost 200 percent increase in voting numbers on the previous year, showing that parents really are standing up and rewarding the companies that go that extra mile to be truly ‘baby friendly’.

We can’t wait for next year!
