Great Ways to Fundraise

Thank you to all staff at Homes for Northumberland for helping to raise over £1k for Tiny Lives.

Staff have took part in some great fundraising days since 2014, their fundraising days have included a Christmas fundraising day, wear a wig to work. One of the Managing Directors even got involved by challenging the staff to wear the colours of his favourite football team, Aston Villa, to celebrate them making it to the FA Cup Final.  For every member of staff who did he kindly donated £2.

“Jake & Kyle were born on 21st September 2013 at 23 weeks and 6 days gestation, weighing just 1lb 6oz and 1lb 7oz.  Thanks to the care and support given by the doctors and nurses in SCBU, and to the equipment and training funded by Tiny Lives, we now have 2 amazing little boys who continue to go from strength to strength and meet milestones like any other baby.

We spent 123 days in SCBU which saw some days no parent should have to go through, including Jake & Kyle’s first Christmas, and we will always be eternally grateful for making our family complete”.
