Yet medical research into pregnancy complications has traditionally received little funding in the UK. That’s why, since its inception in 1992, Tommy’s has been determined to create a pregnancy research network of worldwide importance but it can only do this thanks to the fundraising efforts of the public and companies like Asda.

Not only can shoppers enjoy amazing discounts in store on all their baby and toddler needs, they can also pick up the exclusive Peppa Pig Bag for Life  (£2) and Peppa and George plush key rings (£2) in aid of Tommy’s.

And last year the public helped Asda raise a fantastic £400,000 for Tommy’s and it needs your help again this year to make sure this vital research continues – so get shopping!
