Parents of twins, triplets and quads wanted for new research study

Are you a parent to a twin, triplet or quad? If so, you can help out with a new research study! Please see below for details and a short message from Dr Nicholas Embleton, Consultant Neonatal Paediatrician:

We are conducting a study to find out about parents’ experiences when twins (or triplets, quads etc,) are transferred between hospitals, so we can better understand what it feels like. We are interested in the situation where the twins have to be cared for in a different hospital at the same time. This may be for a short period (e.g. a few hours) or might be for much longer (e.g. if one twin needed intensive care at another hospital, but there was no space for the other twin to be kept with them). Please follow the link below for more information or to contact the research team. Thank you. – Dr Nicholas Embleton

Millstone Charity Golf Day 2017

We had a great day on Friday 11th August at the Millstone annual charity golf day in aid of Tiny Lives.  Thank you to Mike Cramman who kindly organised the day along with a BBQ and presentation evening held at the Millstone Pub.

This year the golf day was held at Northumberland Golf Course and raised the amazing amount of £4247.27, which is double the amount raised in 2016. All of this is thanks to lots of people, including Northumberland Golf Course who accepted Tiny Lives as charity of the year and in turn provided the course free of charge for the day, as well as our wonderful golf players who paid an entry fee for a 4 ball, and who purchased a raffle envelope. We also had great support from many companies who sponsored tee holes and donated raffle prizes and as well as supporters making donations on the day.

We also like to say thank you to Tesco Bank for allowing one of their employees to volunteer for the day – Thank you Cath you did a great job getting all the golfers registered for the day.

Wheelchair Steve’s Metro 60 Charity Challenge

Wheel Chair Steve

The Metro 60 Charity Challenge will take place on Tuesday 26th April 2016 with a target to raise £60,000 for 11 charities based in the North East of England.

Steve Wilkinson (“WheelchairSteve“), assisted by Paul Lawton and Phil Pugh, will board the 6.04AM train from Newcastle Airport Metro Station. They will get off at Callerton moments later, where they will wait until next train arrives and board that train. This process will continue at each station until all 60 Tyne & Wear Metro Stations have been visited.

It is estimated that, allowing for breaks, the entire Metro 60 Charity Challenge will take about 15 hours, so it’s expected to finish at St. James’ at around 9.00 – 9.30pm.
