a cause close to carol’s heart

The Christmas Lights Switch On event at Trinity Square raised a fantastic £460 for our chosen charity Tiny Lives.  Part of the fundraising came from the proceeds of a raffle and the lady who scooped the top prize of a 32″ colour TV had her own very special reason for supporting this good cause.

Carol Hogarth, from Gateshead, had her Son at 28 weeks premature.  Thankfully, he’s now a fit and healthy 27-year-old!

Carol come to the event with her Great Nephew Alfie and together they had a wonderful night.  Alfie was determined to choose the tickets and he’s now claimed the TV as his own when he’s staying round at Aunty Carol’s house!  Well done Alfie and Carol and we hope your family have a lovely Christmas enjoying your raffle prize!
