Baby Beat


Baby Beat is a small local charity based in Lancashire which strives to promote world class treatment and care for mothers and babies being cared for in the maternity units at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

Baby Beat’s aims include: supporting maternity services to promote the best possible outcome for unborn babies from conception to birth, including the wellbeing of the mother; providing specialist care for premature and new-born babies when required; supporting research to improve health outcomes, and finally, providing emotional and practical support to parents suffering stillbirth and/or the death of their baby.

Essentially, Baby Beat seeks to save the lives of babies not yet born and give the babies born in our area the very best chance for life and the start of their journey into the world. Everything we fund is additional to that which the NHS provides and makes a real difference to local families.

To join in with Baby Beat's first ever virtual balloon race, which sets off at 12pm on Monday 14th September, just create an Ecoracing account using the links below - not only can you design, decorate and name your balloon, you can watch it take off from Red Square, Moscow, and then follow your balloon on its journey over 7 days.

Finally, by supporting our balloon race you will be helping us to continue our important work during the coronavirus pandemic - thank you and good luck!

Gross monies raised so far: £270
