Southport NCT Volunteer Team nominated for award

The National Childbirth Trust Stars Awards recognise the hard work and dedication of the volunteers and practitioners who provide services and support to parents across the country during those early days of their child’s life.

The Southport, Formby and Ormskirk branch are delighted to announce that the team behind their popular playgroup, Tums to Toddlers, has been nominated for the North West Volunteer Team of the Year.

Led by Katherine Barton and Caroline Prendergast, the team set up the group after securing a grant from local firm Dickinson Parker Hill Solicitors. The group has now been running for more than a year and has gone from strength to strength. Katherine and Caroline provide a warm welcome for parents and little ones every week and local parents are very grateful for the support that the group provides.

Voting can be done online at and voting closes at 9 am on Monday 26th June 2017. The winners will be announced by Friday 14th July 2017.

Tums to Toddlers is on every Friday morning at Southport Community Centre from 9.45 – 11.30. Everyone is very welcome and you do not need to be a member of NCT to attend. The group is also always looking for volunteers so please email if you are interested in helping out.
