Little Rockers Red Nose Discos are back for 2020

Tuesday 28 July, 2020

Little Rockers Radio is in it’s seventh year and still raising much needed funds for Red Nose Day with the Little Rockers Red Nose Discos.
 
Creator Sarah Morrissey remembers all too clearly the night she received a call from her brother to tell her of his sons passing at 16-months of age. It was the night that changed everything for her family and for her, and now 12-years on she has helped to raise over $190,000 for Red Nose to fund research, education and support.

“I wanted to help raise funds in memory of my nephew Dylan, in a fun way, that was easy for children to get involved,” says Sarah, creator of the Little Rockers Red Nose Disco. “After launching Little Rockers Radio in 2013, the idea was clear, a special disco broadcast where Early Learning Centres around the country could Press Play and disco dance with the tots, have fun and help raise much needed funds and awareness.”

Early Learning Centres register to host a disco at their facility, wear red on Red Nose Day and bust some disco moves and children are encouraged to bring in gold coin donations and all funds raised go to Red Nose.

Little Rockers Radio partnered with Red Nose in its first year and the two organisations have worked together since, with hundreds of Early Learning Centres around the country joining in. “I truly believe that working together as a community is where the magic happens,” said Sarah.

Sarah is unsure how COVID will affect funds raised for this year’s disco as times are tough for many, however early indications are good with similar disco registrations to 2019. It’s certainly a time where we could all do with a little silliness!

The disco isn’t just for those attending Early Learning either, anyone can register to have an #iso disco in their own lounge room, at their play group or Mums Group if they’re not affected by local lock downs.
 
This year also sees the introduction of the live disco stream with Little Rockers Red Nose DJ, from Kids Disco Parties. Kids will be able to dance along with the DJ and enjoy an extra level of nosey interaction.

With 3,000 Australian babies dying suddenly and unexpectedly each year, there is still much work to be done in the devastating areas of stillbirth, sudden infant death and fatal sleeping accidents. Red Nose Day, August 14th 2020, raises awareness about this shattering reality.

CEO of Red Nose, Keren Ludski,  says, “COVID-19 has presented all of us with many challenges, but just imagine what it’s been like for the thousands of Australian families who have lost a baby during this time? Red Nose is there, providing much-needed virtual grief support around the clock thanks to the generosity of Australians who dig deep each Red Nose Day.”
