  • Meet Lauren

    Published 10/07/23, by Sophia Wakemen

    Hello there! I'm Lauren, and my connection with Little Miracles goes back an impressive 7 years!

    My journey with Little Miracles began as a family member. I am a proud mother of three wonderful children named Ava, Elouise, and Theo. From being a family member, I transitioned into a volunteer role, then an employee. However, I took a four-year break to care for my daughter during a critical time. Now, I am thrilled to be back with Little Miracles, this time as a fundraiser!

    Having an employer who understands, appreciates, and accommodates my personal situation is of utmost importance to me. Little Miracles has been incredible in this regard. They fully comprehend and embrace the fact that my child's well-being and needs always come first. This understanding and support are the reasons why I never want to leave! Fundraising is my way of giving back, as helping other families like mine holds tremendous significance. Little Miracles has been my guiding light, pulling me out of dark places, and I want to ensure that no other family ever feels alone or helpless.

    I eagerly look forward to crossing paths with you soon!

  • Meet Nikita

    Published 09/11/22, by Sophia Wakemen

    Hi, I am Nikita, the Centre Manager at Peterborough.

    I first joined Little Miracles many years ago as a parent when the team were supporting me with my eldest child. Over the following years I worked in the early years sector, local schools and children's centres gaining the experience from both a professional and a parent’s perspective. I wanted to use the skills I had gained to give back and work with families, helping them in the same way that Little Miracles had helped me many years before. They had inspired me and I wanted to join them in the amazing work they do.

    I enjoy so many aspects of my role;  meeting the families, providing enriching experiences and opportunities to our young people and being able to support the parents and guardians at the same time. I also love to learn from my colleagues and the professionals I liaise with on a daily basis.
