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.

Care Packages for Bunbury

Some babies are admitted to Neonatal Units for several hours and some for many months. This has considerable impact on parents, siblings, extended family and staff, a true ripple effect.

Each baby is unique, each stay is unique but for most it is totally unexpected. Being separated from your baby isn’t what was planned. The babies admitted to Bunbury Regional Hospital Neonatal Unit generally stay 1 to 7 days. Their parents may be feeling overwhelmed and isolated during that time.

We are pleased to announce expansion of our Care Package Program to Bunbury Regional Hospital 🎉 With thanks to volunteer delivery driver Sharni, each month BRH Neonatal Unit will receive 30 ‘Special Care Packs’ for distribution to babies admitted to their unit.

We are very conscious of expanding our programs in a sustainable way. It is thanks to the generosity of the community that we can continue to grow, and support more WA families each year.

  • 18 February at 10am at Hatched Coffee Shop, Kingsley.
