Our first event - The Mermaid Ball - Saturday 24th March 2012

Tickets are no longer available for this event

The Princess Mermaid Ball, the first of our annual Princess Balls supporting British Charities, will be taking place on Saturday 24th March 2012 at Plymouth's National Marine Aquarium.

Come and support Tommy's Charity as we tour the underwater mer-world, dining in the Sea Palace on a sumptuous three course meal fit for King Triton, whilst listening to our own answer to the Little Mermaid, Poppy Mills.

We then venture back to land to enjoy the casino, bar and DJ, partying the night away.

Tickets are 40 each, or a table of 10 for 360.

About the Charity

Tommy's funds research into pregnancy problems and provides information to parents.

At Tommy’s we believe it is unacceptable that one in four women will lose a baby during pregnancy and birth.

When a pregnancy fails or a baby dies, the families affected can be devastated and often have a desperate need to know why. Frustrated at the lack of research that meant they could rarely answer this question, two obstetricians working in the maternity unit at St Thomas' Hospital in London were inspired to start fundraising for more research into pregnancy problems.

Soon, their cause was taken up by others and a charity affectionately known as 'Tommy's' (after St Thomas' Hospital) was born.

That was 1992. Today, we lead the way in maternal and fetal research in the UK. To give every baby the best chance of being born healthy, we work to fund medical research into the causes of premature birth, stillbirth and miscarriage.

We fund three research centres in the UK, including St Thomas' in London, St Mary’s in Manchester and the recently established Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh, which focus their research efforts on different issues relating to pregnancy.

We also feel it's important to raise awareness of the facts and to provide free, accurate and up-to-date information for medical professionals and parents-to-be.

This includes a dedicated telephone midwife service, a comprehensive website and free books and leaflets dedicated to promoting health in pregnancy and pre-pregnancy.

We are supported by people who want to do something about the lack of research and information around pregnancy issues like miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth.

We believe every parent has the right to a healthy pregnancy and baby. Our target is to halve the number of babies that die during pregnancy or birth by 2030.
