Calling all CHB Grower Group members and CBH employees

We would love to see you nominate Tiny Sparks WA for community funding through the CBH Group’s Harvest Mass Management Scheme (HMMS). We support families all over the state who experience high-risk pregnancy, prematurity or a sick newborn. Our farming families are often the most in need of our support being away from their families during such a difficult time. Via our care package program, peer support network, comprehensive website and more we are there to assist them all the way through their journey from diagnosis right through the neonatal unit and childhood helping with their overall sense of wellbeing.

You can nominate Tiny Sparks WA here -  https://www.cbh.com.au/cbh-community/hmms-donations

Should you need any additional information to complete the nomination please e-mail chair@tinysparkswa.org.au

Thanks for your consideration!

Tiny Sparks at Telethon 2017

We were excited to be given a unique opportunity to participate in the Peard Real Estate cycle challenge at Telethon this year alongside organisers Matt Fuller, Josh Catalano and Soa Pallelei who were riding for 24 hours, what a super human effort!

Russell donned his Tiny Sparks t-shirt and put in a awesome effort on the spin bike riding from 10pm until midnight.  Visitors to the cycle challenge during this time included The Premier Mark McGowan, Hon Julie Bishop MP, David Koch, Natalie Barr, Samantha Armytage and many, many others.

The atmosphere at the cycle challenge was electric.  The DJ did a wonderful job keeping the music upbeat and the crowd of onlookers entertained.

DJ booth keeping the atmosphere pumping for the cyclists.

With Emily Prior 2014 Telethon Star and NICU graduate.

With Matt Fuller chief fitness challenge organiser and 24 hour cyclist.  No, they don't get off their bikes, not even for toilet breaks!

The cycle challenge raised over $150,000 for Telethon helping them to reach an all time record of $36,431,381.  Well done Western Australia, your generosity is truly inspirational!

With Josh Catalano, 24 hour cyclist and father of NICU graduate 'Lenny the Lion'.

Making it look easy!

This was our very first time at Telethon and it was fantastic!  We hope to be back in a larger capacity in 2018.

In the zone.

2 hours on a spin bike done, riding for all the 'tiny sparks' who start life in the neonatal unit!

WA you are amazing, smashing last years tally!

Like almost 4,000 other babies born in 2014 Caleb started his life in the neonatal unit, born at just 27 weeks gestation.  He recently celebrated his third birthday by raising a whopping $761.67 for Tiny Sparks WA, what a super effort for someone so young!  Happy Birthday Caleb!  You can check out his Everyday Hero fundraising page here.

We are so grateful to Caleb and his family and friends.  19 care packages are now on their way to neonatal units in Perth with Caleb's personal message.
