IT company will be raising funds for neonatal charity Tiny Lives
IT company TruStack Ltd has pledged to raise more than £7,000 to help parents with sick babies.
The company, based in Cramlington, wants to raise £7,500 in the coming year for new charity partner The Tiny Lives Trust, which supports the Neonatal Unit at Newcastle’s RVI Hospital.
That is the same amount that it costs annually to run vCreate, a secure video messaging service that allows clinical teams to send updates on children to their parents when they can’t be together.
The partnership between TruStack and Tiny Lives came about after the charity helped two of the company’s six directors through difficult times.
Both Paul Watson and Russell Henderson were supported by Tiny Lives, and the pair has been wanting to pay the charity back ever since.
