Friends raise over £1,000 for the children’s ward at North Tyneside hospital
A group of friends have taken part in the Great North Run and raised over £1,000 for the children’s ward at North Tyneside hospital.
Angela Charlton, Tracy Gourley and Andrea Fitzpatrick – all local childminders were keen to support children in their local hospital. Angela said “a couple of us have children who have been treated on the ward so we know from experience what a wonderful job the staff do. We wanted to raise money to help buy the extras such as new toys which can make a real difference to children during their stay. The Great North Run was a real challenge for us but we are already thinking of doing it again!”
Well done and thank you to Angela, Tracey and Andrea.
