Whitley Bay Rotary Club raises £1000 for Tiny Lives

Whitley Bay Rotary Club

The Whitley Bay Rotary Club, who are long-term supporters of Tiny Lives, have shown their generosity once again by donating an amazing £1,000 to the Tiny Lives Trust.

The money was raised through community fundraising at a local Sainsbury’s supermarket, as well as a kind donation from the Trustees of the Rotary Club. John Clarkson, the President of Whitley Bay Rotary Club, said:

“The Rotary Club was delighted to be involved in helping so many children at the RVI Neonatal Unit, where they provide the best possible care to so many premature babies and their families and Whitley Bay Rotary is pleased to be able to support them once again.’’

Louise Carroll, Community and Events Fundraiser at Tiny Lives, went to meet members of the Rotary Club last week to collect their donation. She said:

“Over the years, Whitley Bay Rotary Club has kindly supported Tiny Lives through various fundraising events and activities in the community and we really can’t say thank you enough for their ongoing support; it helps Tiny Lives to continue to support to over 700 families and babies who spend time on the Neonatal Unit at the RVI each year.”
