Big Money Raised for Tiny Lives

21 March 2022

 

Sanderson Arcade has relaunched its yearly fundraising initiative, aiming to raise £5,000 for the centres nominated charity Tiny Lives. 

So far, the Arcade has raised £4,000 for the charity, which works to help care for premature and sick newborn babies along with their mothers and families in the Special Care Baby Unit at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle. 

Lottie Thompson, Centre Manager at Sanderson Arcade, said: “Tiny Lives is such a life changing charity and is always there for families and babies when they need it most, which is why we are so determined to hit our £5,000 goal.”

Over the Christmas period, the centre partnered up with the Tree of Light Group, who are managed by the Morpeth Rotary to help with fundraising efforts. The group allows people to place a dedication on the Sanderson Arcade Christmas tree each year, all whilst raising money for a worthy cause.

Sanderson Arcade has eight months left to reach its goal and has planned various fundraising activities throughout the centre’s busy calendar of events.

Lottie continued: “At Sanderson Arcade we are committed to working in partnership with the wider community. Over the last 10 years Sanderson Arcade has raised over £30,000 for local children’s charities including The Sick Children's Trust, Alan Shearer Foundation, Barnabas Stobhill Centre and Cleaswell Hill School." “Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, our fundraising efforts had to be put on pause. But that just makes us even more determined to hit our target for Tiny Lives!”
