Event Organiser Carl Barma said “The Tiny Hearts appeal is a great cause and doesn’t even need a reason for being my chosen charity but my brother who also happens to run the venue lost a baby who was born prematurely. Also my parents are foster carers for over 20 years and I’ve seen my share of vulnerable babies. Being a local charity it can directly be there to help the future generations to live a healthy and happy life”
