Tommy's guest blog, 22/02/2018 by Lianne

Tommy's is a charity close to mine and my husband's hearts as we suffered three miscarriages over the space of two years, and it was Tommy's who offered us advice and support during that time. We had previously fundraised for Tommy's after our second miscarriage and it helped us get through that time, knowing we were supporting the vital research Tommy's does.

Elsie arrived 3 years after we started trying for a baby, and Baby Sensory was the highlight of our week in those early days, so when we heard that the Sensathon would be raising money for Tommy's, I knew we would want to get involved; having Elsie involved in the fundraising was so special to me, because at one point I couldn't have imagined her ever being here with us.

We had loads of fun...Elsie dressed as Woody, and me as Buzz Light year; the promise of me in that costume was enough for some people to sponsor us! Elsie won a prize for being the top fundraiser in Stockport - and we were able to give something back to a charity that means so much to us.
