We are supporting two charities which are very close to our hearts...
The Tiny Lives Trust is a registered charity that helps to care for premature and sick new born babies, their mothers and families in the Special Care Baby Unit of the Newcastle Neonatal Service based in Ward 35 of the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.
The fund aims to provide the highest quality of care on an ongoing basis and needs to raise at least £ 250,000 every year to support a range of facilities, staff, and equipment.

The Firefighters Charity
The Firefighters Charity is committed to helping sick and injured members of the fire and rescue community, including serving and retired members of the fire service, fire personnel and their families.
It costs over £8 million every year to keep the charity running, and it is completely reliant upon donations and fundraising.
The charity has three centres in Devon, Cumbria and West Sussex, which offer a range of support programmes including physical rehabilitation and recuperation to members of the fire and rescue community in times of need.
The charity also provides practical assistance and solutions on a local level through their nationwide network of professional staff and volunteers.
