Staff at Homes for Northumberland have raised almost £1,000 for a charity which supports premature or sick newborn babies and their families.

The Blyth-based organisation held a series of events from a “Wear a Wig to Work” day, to cake sales and an Easter egg and spoon race, to raise money for Tiny Lives, which was nominated as the company’s corporate charity last year.

Head of Tiny Lives, Carol Meredith, said: “Our thanks to everyone at HfN who rose to some great fundraising challenges for Tiny Lives, their fundraising will purchase high quality developmental care aids that make a real difference to babies on the RVI Special Care Baby Unit at one of the most critical times in their lives.”
