Runners raise money for special care baby unit

A warm thank you to Emma and Mark Johnstone who took part in this year’s Great North Run to raise money for our special care baby unit.

Emma and Mark chose to support the unit after all three of their children spent time in special care when they were first born.  

Twins Marcus and Violet are now aged five and Josie is three. 

It was Emma’s first Great North Run and Mark’s fourth.  Emma said: “It was my first time taking part in the run and I really enjoyed the day. We received our places in the ballot and just really wanted to thank the staff for the fantastic care our children received when they spent time in the unit, they do a fantastic job.“

Emma and Mark raised £450 in sponsorship and the funds will go towards providing the special extras that make a real difference to the unit. Our warmest thanks go to Emma and Mark for their support.
