Be A Peppa Sports Champion....And Champion A Good Cause!

 Peppa Pig fans can celebrate the 2012 Olympics with a new ‘Team Peppa’ Bag For Life (£2) available exclusively at Asda stores nationwide, from 9th January 2012. All Peppa ‘champions’ who buy the bag will be helping baby charity Tommy’s to help more babies have the best start in life.

The bag will be available at checkouts at all Asda stores from with proceeds going to Tommy’s.

Tommy’s funds research into pregnancy complications –such as stillbirth, miscarriage and premature birth – and provides free pregnancy health information for all parents-to-be, so more parents can have a happy and healthy pregnancy.

Sadly, pregnancy complications such as these are more common than people think:

1 in 4 UK women lose a baby at pregnancy or birth.
Every day in England and Wales alone, around 290 women experience a miscarriage, approximately 149 babies are born prematurely and 10 babies are stillborn.
In Scotland, about 25 women experience a miscarriage and 2 babies are born preterm every day, and one baby is stillborn every second day.

This is why Tommy’s funds internationally-renowned research into pregnancy problems. None of Tommy’s
work would be possible without the fundraising efforts of the public and partners such as Asda and Peppa Pig.

Last year, Asda raised a fantastic £945,000 for Tommy’s - we will need your help again this year to raise a similar amount in 2012!

Join team Peppa and get yours now while stocks last!
