Buggy push to raise funds for baby charity

A North Shields mum will be dusting down her buggy for a walk with a difference.

Louise Cervantes-Jordan has organised a 5km buggy push to raise money for special care baby charity Bliss.

The event will take place at Linkskill Community Centre, North Shields, on Friday, May 31.

The walk, sarating at 10.30am, will take participants through Tynemouth before finishing up at The Magic Lantern pub in North Shields, where there will be free soft play for youngsters.

Louise decided to support the charity as her niece Lucy and nephew Michael were both born prematurely.

Louise said: “Bliss is close to my heart.

“My niece and nephew were born prematurely at 25 weeks gestation.

“They both defied the odds and are now thriving eight-year-olds.

“To sponsor me please go to www.justgiving.com/teams/babybuttercup”
