Tommy's Awards 2017

Celebrating special family members and friends, and companies that make a difference to the lives of parents across the UK!

Tommy's Awards

On Friday the 24th of March, we had the honour of recognising some inspirational individuals and dedicated companies at our annual Tommy's Awards. The 2017 Awards were extra special for us as this year Tommy's are celebrating 25 years of saving babies lives!

It was wonderful to come together with some of the incredible companies and individuals who have helped Tommy’s achieve all that we have across the years.

The Community Awards

Costa Star Fundraiser Award

This award recognises an extraordinary individual who has gone above and beyond to fundraise in their local community on behalf of Tommy’s.

Winner: Susan Jackson

Susan Jackson was told she was pregnant with identical twins Ella and Evie in 2010.  Tragically, Evie was stillborn and she was left to take Ella home, without her precious twin.

Susan decided to channel her loss and start fundraising. She is tireless in her commitment to raise awareness for Tommy’s and challenge the stigma around baby loss.  Since 2010, her focus and passion has raised more than £52,000 for Tommy’s.

Community Diamond Award

This award is given to recognise a partner that has gone the extra mile in every way to help us raise money to save more babies’ lives.

Winner: Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense for the Tommy’s Sensathon event

Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense only started supporting Tommy’s a few years ago in 2014, but they have already helped raise an incredible amount of money. We asked them to see if they could raise £375,000 for Tommy’s last year. Not only did they hit that target, they actually exceeded it by over £65,000!

The Company Awards

The Awards also recognise companies that make the lives of parents and parents-to-be across the UK that little bit easier.  Earlier this year, Tommy's and Bounty asked Bounty's trusted Mums Panel to help us shortlist your favourite family-friendly brands.  We then put the vote out to parents across the UK.
