Nancy Sorrell, the model and wife of comedian Vic Reeves, travelled out to the brand new First Choice Holiday Village Rhodes last week, to help fundraise for the annual Tommy’s Splashathon.

As well as enjoying a much needed break with her family out in Rhodes, Nancy was there to encourage customers to join in with the Splashathon activities. Both First Choice and Nancy have supported Tommy’s the baby charity for a number of years.

Nancy hosted the day’s activities throughout the afternoon which included challenging one of the reps to have his chest waxed and introducing the Big Splash where everyone got into the pool with their little ones to take part in a big sponsored splash.

First Choice has pulled out all the stops to support the Splashathon across their eight Holiday Villages. Throughout the summer holidays, from Cyprus to Portugal, Majorca to Egypt, First Choice customers have been getting in the pool and making a Splash to raise hundreds of pounds for Tommy’s.

Nancy Sorrell says: “I am so grateful for my two little girls, and by getting involved with Splashathon and raising money for research into pregnancy complications, I can help other mums be mums like me! It was a lot of fun taking part, and knowing it's for a great cause makes it all the more worthwhile."

Ian Chapman, head of overseas operations for First Choice said “We’ve had a fantastic time raising money for Tommy’s for the last two years and are looking forward to raising more money than ever this summer! As a family holiday tour operator we are proud to be supporting a charity like Tommy’s which helps so many families across the UK.”

Jane Brewin, Chief Executive of Tommy's said: "Currently 1 in 4 women will lose a baby every year in the UK, so we really value each little splash made throughout Splashathon, as theses splashes raise money that will ultimately go on to save babies lives. None of Tommy's work would be possible without the fundraising efforts of the public and our partners, and we are therefore very thankful for the support we receive from First Choice and its customers."

Editor’s Notes:

At Tommy’s we believe every pregnancy should have a happy ending.

We want to give every baby the best chance of being born healthy, so we work to fund medical research into the causes of premature birth, stillbirth and miscarriage, and provide a free information service that educates all parents-to-be about health in pregnancy.

Our information service is informed by our medical research and includes a telephone midwife service, a comprehensive website and free books and leaflets promoting health in pregnancy.

By 2030 we want to halve the number of babies who die during pregnancy or birth.

Tommy’s registered charity number is 1060508 and SC039280.
