The Closer 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.

 2018 Winner: Steven Chidgey and Nicole Addy

On October 12th, 2016 the lives of Steven Chidgey and his partner Nicole Addy were changed forever when their beautiful baby girl Avery was born sleeping.

Steven channelled the grief of losing his daughter into some very mentally and physically challenging fundraising events, including breaking a world record with a marathon car push! 

Nicole and Steven have been tireless in their commitment to raise funds awareness for Tommy’s and challenge the stigma around baby loss.
