Thanks to Katie Phillips and Laura Samuels we've received an additional spot in the London Marathon 2014. Tash Eggleton (friend of the charity) has happily accepted the spot and is currently training hard! Thank you all! 


This year has been one of the toughest our family have ever faced. The birth of Noah, our beautiful son, his fight, tenacity and personality, coupled with the compassion and humility of those who cared for him, as well as the many who showed their support, never actually meeting him, was truly inspirational.

Noah's passing was our darkest hour, however from this empowered by our son, a light of hope has grown in intensity since, with the creation of Noah's Big Charity!

We are proud to let everyone know that in the 6 months the charity has been active we have raised in-excess of £20,000, which will be going to our benefactors at the Royal London and Basildon hospitals in the new year!

We as a family and as a charity thank you all for the tremendous support we have received, to our Team Noah members we thank you for your dedication and we wish one and all a very Happy New Year for 2014!

29.08.13 The Facebook Machine

We're still growing and we've just gone past the 300 Likes mark! Thanks for the the continued support facebookers.

25.08.13 New Beginnings

A huge thank you to Joanna Wilkinson and all the guys at New Beginnings Day Nurseries, who along with the little ones who attend the nursery, took part in a toddle to the local park to raise funds for charity. They have kindly donated £600 to Noah's Big Charity.......Wow!

Also, at their Romford nursery they have dedicated a garden growing area as 'Noah's Growing Area', to show children how plants and vegetables grow, how to take care of them and how precious they are. What fantastic people.

14.08.13 We're now on Twitter

Following the advice of some friends and trying to reach as many people as possible to raise awareness of the Charity, our aims and hopefully finding people who can help, we are now live on Twitter, @NoahsBigCharity. We've added a link at the bottom of the page along with the existing facebook and Tumblr links, as well as the follow button opposite.

Thank you to all our facebook friends!

01.08.13 - Great Scott!

Thanks to his wife, a good friend of ours and the Charity, Scott Fairley (of London 10K fame) was nominated to be a Hero of the Month, in the 'This is Your Essex' Magazine. Well deserved for Scott! Great article and fantastic coverage for Noah's Big Charity, featuring in its first official publication, reaching many homes in Essex. Thanks to Scott (His Wife Kylie) and the team at This is Your Essex.

25.07.13  Visit to Basildon NICU

Visited Basildon NICU today, where Noah started his 91 day adventure! Thanks again to all the team there who gave us the opportunity of time with our little boy. Really positive feedback from the unit about the charity and how we might be able to help!


Congratulations to 'Team Noah', all of the magnificent 7 completed the race in very very hot conditions..... What stars! Still waiting on a final count, but believe we raised in excess of £1000! Particular thanks to Scott, competing in his first race, he raised a substantial amount on his own!

13.07.13  First Race Day

Please wish, Adele, Sarah, John, Keith, Scott & Rich, the first 'Team Noah' to hit the streets, for The British London 10K Run, Good Luck! If you happen to be near Green Park off of Piccadilly tommorrow, the race starts at 9:35am and all support is welcomed! Don't forget the suncream.... its going to be hot!


As a result of the kind generosity of all who attended Noah's funeral we have raised almost £1,500.00, this puts us well on target to reach £5,000.00 which will offer us the opportunity to complete our application to become an official registered charity.

Thank you to you all.

Richard & Lydia
