A fright night to help babies

A fright night to remember helped raise money for charity.

Staff at the North Shields branch of Leeds Building Society held a Hallowe’en theme night at Percy Park Rugby Club in Tynemouth to raise money for the Tiny Lives Trust.

The charity supports premature and sick new-born babies at the RVI in Newcastle.

The event raised more than £500 through a quiz, a raffle and various other games all in fancy dress.

Louise Carroll, from Tiny Lives, said: “I would just like to say a big thank you to Angela Rowley, Cheryl Keeler, Alison Devine and Kelly Shippen (Leeds Building Society) for all the effort they put into such a great evening. I would also like to say thank you to everyone who attended.”

Alison Devine, customer contact centre manager for Leeds Building Society, said: “Everyone who attended made the night a great success.”

“We had excellent support from companies for raffle prizes simply by being cheeky and approaching them, we were amazed at the support and had some fantastic prizes for the raffle.

“Everyone who attended the night has asked if we could hold another event and we are confident it would be an even bigger success.”
