Sainsbury’s Local Supporting Tiny Lives

Sainsbury’s Local – Gallowgate Newcastle, have come up with a great way to support Tiny Lives throughout 2014-2015 as we are chosen charity of the year for Sainsbury’s Local – Gallowgate Newcastle. 

One of the ways they are supporting Tiny Lives is by kindly donating wonderful treats for the buddy group meetings which are held nearly every month at the RVI, sometimes they can hold a morning of activities in one of Newcastle’s local business.

The buddy group meeting gives parents a chance to catch up if they have lost contact with each other after leaving the unit, it gives parents who currently have babies on the unit the chance to speak to families who have been through similar experiences on the Special Care Baby Unit, staff members also try to attend the buddy group so it’s nice for everyone to catch up and chat about anything you like.  Dads are also more than welcome to the buddy group meeting. 

Sainsbury’s Local – Gallowgate Newcastle, are also helping to support Tiny Lives with parents diaries and progress sticker charts for their babies progress, as well as much other support we provide to the Special Care Baby Unit and the families.

It’s wonderful to receive these kind donations and we can’t thank everyone at Sainsbury’s enough for making this happen.
