Country Music Bonanza at Holt Rock

Twice a year the incredible Westfield Country Music Club host the Holtrock Hoedown at the Strother’s family farm in Holt Rock. It’s a weekend filled with fun, friendship, delicious food and excellent country music from not just the live band but plenty of budding musicians too. Many attendees donate items for the live auction such as a magnificent quilt, local honey and fresh oysters!

Several Tiny Sparks families travelled to Holt Rock from Perth, Esperance and the Goldfields. They camped for the weekend and could not fault the hospitality or entertainment. The generosity shown by everyone was phenomenal and a staggering $6,000 was donated to Tiny Sparks from this weekend. Thank you all!

This donation will directly benefit more than 150 West Australian families through our Care Package program!

The next Holt Rock Hoedown is on Saturday the 12th of October. To find out more about this great event please follow them on Facebook at their page The Holt Rock Hoedown.

National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week #NVW2019 is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers.  This years theme is ‘Making a World of Difference’.

Tiny Sparks is entirely volunteer run.  Without our volunteers generously giving thousands of hours each year we would simply cease to exist. Every week our volunteers who live not just in Perth, but all over Western Australia, put in countless hours managing our operations, packing and delivering Care Packages, answering enquires, coordinating community events, attending Coffee Mornings, running our online Support Groups, knitting, sewing, fundraising and more!

We are so grateful they choose to support Tiny Sparks, they really do ‘make the world of difference’!

HBF Run Team Success 2019

It may have started out as one of the coldest mornings we’ve experienced this year, but that didn’t stop more than 33,000 people packing the streets of Perth for the HBF Run for a Reason.

Our 40 strong team were spread across various groups with several in the half marathon and even some ‘tiny sparks’ walking in the prams and families 4km. We caught up with a few of the team at the finish but with the change to the staggered start times this year, many of our team were finished before the 4km event had started.

Several months ago we set our sights on a fundraising target of $7,240 to fund a special project across 4 Perth hospital Neonatal Units which consisted of:

  • 6 free standing mobile phone recharging stations.

  • Creation of 36 Neonatal Unit specific milestone cards which can be downloaded FREE from our website.

  • Printing of the milestone cards and large display boards for easy access for parents within the Neonatal Units.

  • Coffee machine.

  • Microwave.

  • Going home signage.

Feedback from our families let us know just what a difference these small things would make to their Neonatal Unit stay. Our reason for running was simple. Everyday 10 babies born in Western Australia are admitted to a Neonatal Unit. Their families need our support!

Our team have put in a phenomenal effort! Not only have they been busy sharing their personal stories, telling everyone why they support Tiny Sparks WA and what we do, they have also been raising funds. To each of them, their families, friends and supporters we are SO grateful. Not only have we reached our target, we have smashed it! As of 5pm 18/5 collectively the team had raised a staggering $11,229 with donations continuing to come in! (As soon as the final figure is reconciled we will let everyone know.)

We will be inviting some of top fundraisers to assist us with handovers to the hospitals. It’s their hard work that has made this project a success! We will also be inviting all of our team to send in some Care Package messages to encourage and support more families.

If you’ve been inspired to make a difference we welcome you to join our team for the City to Surf. Keep an eye out for team details. If running isn’t your thing and you’d prefer a sophisticated evening of wine and delicious morsels, please join us for ‘A Night to Sparkle’ presented by Boutique Events, all proceeds to Tiny Sparks WA.
