CONNIES ACID HOUSE PARTY (The day Connie met a superstar DJ)

3months ago a close family friend Mr Steven Dobson approached us saying he wanted to arrange an Acid House party with all the proceeds going to Tiny steps! Fantastic we said and thought ‘better get the dancing shoes polished up!!!
In the following months the interest for this event seemed to be snow balling, Steven informed us that he had managed to land a massive name in Acid house music called DJ Pierre! Long story short it turns out that that DJ Pierre is one of the pioneers of this genre of music and invented the sound on a Roland 303 synthesizer. DJ Pierre agreed to do his set for free when he heard about the charity, a grand and generous gesture in itself , we then found out that he was coming all the way from America!! ‘Wow’ we thought and if that wasn’t enough he was coming out on his birthday to do it leaving all his family to show support for our little girl Connie and our charity Tiny Steps.

Steven Dobson worked tirelessly making sure that no stone was left unturned to make sure that the night was a success and on the 12th of July the time had come for Connie’s Acid house party. DJ Pierre had requested to meet myself, Laura and more importantly Connie in the afternoon at Eastern Block records in Manchester. I’ll not lie we were both a little nervous about meeting such a big name in this industry. We arrived at Eastern Block records and our fears were heightened when we saw a huge crowd of people all eagerly awaiting the arrival of their musical hero to get an autograph or a picture.
Steven had tipped us off about what his favourite cake was and with it being his birthday we all thought it would be a nice gesture to get him a cake so we had a Roland 303 synthesizer cake made by our friend Michelle Rayner who did an amazing job.
We were told that DJ Pierre would be here around 6pm and as the time drew near you could sense the buzz and excitement around you, he arrived right on cue, here he was the DJ superstar that had come all the way from America to support us. To say we were nervous was an understatement as for Connie we think she just wanted her bedtime drink and not really appreciating just what this man has done for us (sorry DJPierre).
DJ Pierre walked straight over to us through a crowd of people and introduced himself and the first thing he did was speak to our little girl Connie and gave her a teddy all the way from Atlanta. I’m not sure what I was expecting from such an important person in this area of music but what we got was a true gentleman who was genuinely interested in what we were trying to achieve. If we were nervous before we weren’t after meeting him. Connie seemed a little upset before his arrival but was more than happy to be carried round by DJ Pierre and at one point it looked like she was getting a lesson in how to use the turntables by the master!!!
Thankyou so much Mr DJ Pierre in your own words Connie has definitely got someone in her corner for life it was an amazing experience watching you do your set at Underworld and an absolute privilege meeting you in person.
The night itself was a roaring success and we can’t thank everyone involved enough.
There is one person apart from DJ Pierre that went above and beyond for Tiny Steps and that is Mr Steven Dobson who literally gave blood ,sweat and tears to make the night a success.
I titled this story ‘the day Connie met a superstar DJ’ and with hindsight being a wonderful thing i would like to amend it to ‘The day Connie met two Superstar DJ’s’.
Thanks Steven!

NORTHWICH DANCE COMPANY

ALPINE TREK

On the 25th of July four men from Hartford golf club (Martin Major, Steve Nicholson, Gareth eaton, Ant Green) took on the ultimate Alpine trek scaling heights of upto 12000 ft with stunning views of the Matterhorn. They faced extreme challenges such as blizzards, landslides, avalanches and even had to do a 30 hour stop over in cliff face hut due to extreme weather conditions!
They put themselves through physical and mental punishment and it was only after speaking to them on their safe return I realised just how much danger they put themselves in and this all in the name of Tiny Steps.
Our Alpine Trekkers have proved themselves as hardcore Tiny Steppers and should be extremely proud of yourselves I know we certainly are. Thankyou so much gents an amazing achievement xxxx

MIA YARWOODS LITTLE MUNCHKINS TEA PARTY

On the 26th of July 6year old Mia Yarwood a close friend of our daughter Connie organised an amazing day to remember.
A few weeks ago Mia approached her Mum and Dad saying she wanted to do something for Connie and her charity Tiny Steps! She decided to organise and host the Tiny Steps tea party at Little Munchkins day nursery which was kindly offered to her by her Nana Lynne.
With a little help from her mum and dad she set about making cakes and tiny steps teddy bears that she could sell to raise money.
After all this hardwork by a 6year old girl on a mission the day of the Tea Party had finally arrived! All Mia’s hardwork had paid off she filled Little Munchkins day nursery with children and families all wanting to support her in her goal which was to raise money for Tiny steps and to help her friend Connie and in doing so managed to raise over £200.
Thankyou so so much Mia. You put on a fantastic fun day and we just want to let you know that Uncle Martin, Aunty Laura, Connie, Betsy and everyone at Tiny Steps are incredibly proud of our youngest Tiny Stepper!!!

COASTAL RUN

on the 27th of August myself and Roger Rayner decided to embark on a two day challenge of running 86 miles from Davenham to Penmonmawr in North Wales along the coastal path. It was a 5am start from the cenotaph outside the odd fellows arms where we picked up the coastal path at Sealand industrial estate after 48 miles and a gruelling first day we arrived at our overnight stay in Prestatyn. One mixed grill and 5 pints later and it was off to bed before another 5am start. Day two was a lot more scenic and enjoyable on the eye especially the Great Orme in Llandudno (stunning views), but to say it was painful would be an understatement but it’s amazing how much determination you can muster from a child like Connie I also have to thank Roger who kept me going especiAlly on the second day.
After completing the dreaded Orme we made our way into Conwy where we found sanctuary in the Mulberry pub on the marina for a crisp celebration lager!!!
After 85 tough miles the end was literally in sight. We finally arrived on Penmonmawr beach where we were greeted by Laura ,Michelle, Betsy and of course the inspiration behind the run Connie and to see her stood there on the finish line made it all worth while xxxx

TINY STEPS GOES GLOBAL

We would like to say a huge thankyou to Steven Holman. Steven a close friend of ours works in the Middle East and is based in Abu Dhabi.
Steve contacted me in the summer asking me if I would like to come out to see him and take part in the first Dubai Iron Man in November? Sounds great I said but not sure if my bank balance will allow me to travel half way across the globe to do a Triathlon! Then he proceeded to tell me that he had set up six teams of three with someone in each team completing either a swim, cycle or run and that with the help and sponsorship of the company he works for Systech, he was aiming to raise as much money as possible for Tiny Steps and that it didn’t seem right doing such an event without myself there to take part! Oh and don’t worry about your bank balance he said. All you need is your trainers and a passport we will fly you over and put you up. And when he put it like that how could I possibly turn down such an opportunity.
On the 5th of November I flew out to Abu Dhabi where I was met by Steve at the airport. It was all a bit surreal but great to catch up with Steve over a few beers.
The next day we drove to Dubai for the Ironman where I found out I was being put up in what was definitely the swankiest hotel I’ve ever stayed in for the next two days. The night before the event we had to meet at the race location for a welcome meeting and this was when I only realised the size of the event and the hard work that had been put in by Steven.
The following morning it was an early start for race day (4am) and the nerves were kicking in. There I met 18 complete strangers all wearing tiny steps kits all willing to go the extra mile for our charity! Extremely humbling to say the least.
The swimmers went off at 6am all doing amazingly well, then it was the cyclists turn and by this time the temperature was already apparent. Steve who was one of the last cyclists out amazingly was one of the first back in and if I’m not mistaken completed the90 km in the fastest time (great effort son). Not known for his modesty Steve renamed himself the bullet after his speedy return. After 6 hours waiting in the sun I was eager to get going, I was the last runner out so had some ground to make up. When my team mate Tom came in I was full of bravado and energy as I confidently shouted to the tiny steps supporters “see you in half an hour”. I flew out the traps but it didn’t take too long before the 90 degree heat got rid of any confidence, energy and definitely bravado. Doing a half marathon in that heat is a test of anyone’s fitness and it definitely put mine to the test. With the finish line in sight I managed to muster up a sprint finish.
After the event the pride I felt regarding all these people taking part in such a huge event for tiny steps is indescribable and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them all.
Later on we finished the day off by celebrating our achievements in Dubai until the early hours.
During my trip I met some fantastic people, but I would like to personally thank Tom Allen and Simon Chandler whom I later found out that along with Steve had made it financially possible for me to take part, paying for my flight and accomadation in Dubai something I will never forget, I would also like to say a big thankyou to Steve’s partner Kathleen who was the perfect host and last but by no means least Steve, who did an amazing job of organising the event and getting everyone involved and no stone was left unturned.
Cheers Steve! The boy done good. Definitely a trip I will never forget.

CHARITY FOOTBALL MATCH

Tiny steps would like to say a huge thanks to Stephen Carter for organising a charity football match down at Chinkers football field in Northwich. The match took place on Sunday the 28th of December between the Green Dragon and the Witton chimes, we would also like to thank the staff at the Green dragon for giving all the players a free drink on arrival at the pub. It was 0 degrees and the pitch was frozen but that didn’t stop everyone turning out to brave the conditions all in the name of tiny steps, it was a fantastic day and the match was well supported.
We would also like to thank Ste Carter and Shaun Boyle for personally providing a chippy supper for everyone (extremely generous).
A fantastic amount was raised and this was matched by Barclays Bank again this was organised by mr Steven Carter.
