  • We won the CCVS Photo Competition!

    Published 27/11/23, by Sophia Wakemen

    We are happy to say that we are the CCVS 2023 photo competition judge's choice winners.

    The story behind the photo is that too many families in the UK live every day with feelings of isolation, exclusion, judgement, stress and anxiety because the world around us is not set-up to help our children live life to their full potential. Just like everyone else, these children need a place to play, laugh and create friendships. At Little Miracles we provide this environment for children, whilst families can access the advice, support and care everyone deserves.

    Our childcare team provide activities, advice and safe-spaces to the whole family even before they receive a formal diagnosis. This includes everyone - the children, their parents, carers and siblings.
    In this photo, our centre manager, Nikita and a youth worker, Sam, are seen playing with R who uses these services offered to her and her family.


    A massive thank you to photographer Nate Lansdell of Smile a Day Photography, who captured the image titled "We Are Little Miracles."

  • Our newest fundraiser, Sophia, tells us about organising her first mass participation event

    Published 30/08/23, by Sophia Wakemen

    Sophia joined the Little Miracles fundraising team in January 2022. She had never organised an event before but she rose to the challenge and helped our incredible supporters raise more than £5,000 for families of children with additional needs, disabilities and life-limiting conditions.

    Here, Sophia gives us the inside scoop on her journey through organising her very first mass participation event, The Big Little Miracles Parachute Jump.

    "As a newcomer to the world of fundraising and planner behind our parachute jump event, I'll confess that I felt a bit daunted initially. Nonetheless, there's an exhilarating sense of adventure in the prospect of not only learning the ropes but also crafting something special to support children with additional needs, disabilities, and life-limiting conditions.

    The individuals who eagerly signed up for the parachute jump were motivated by a genuine desire to make a difference for disabled children or held a personal connection to our cause. It was genuinely heartwarming to discover that quite a few of them had been directly impacted by the challenges faced by siblings or children with disabilities.

    Our dedicated fundraisers achieved a remarkable goal, raising an impressive sum of over £5,000. This contribution has the potential to create a substantial impact, ensuring that our childcare team can provide unwavering support throughout the autumn term. Their efforts offer a safe space for children who might struggle to find acceptance elsewhere.

    The impact of these combined efforts is undeniably remarkable. In addition to their contributions, our jumpers demonstrated exceptional dedication by actively engaging in radio interviews and spreading the word of who Little Miracles are.

    As we approached the end of our planning and marketing efforts, and our daring parachutists fell from the skies, I couldn't help but be overwhelmed by a profound sense of pride. It's crucial to emphasise that this achievement wasn't a solo act; it was a product of the dedication of these incredible fundraisers. Nonetheless, the experience of putting this event together and seeing the remarkable impact it had is a memory I'll never forget"
