An outgoing club president brought a happy end to his year of service by handing over a cheque to the Tiny Lives fund.
Rotary Club of Whitley Bay president Tore Skjaerstad presented the £400 donation following a collection in the town’s Park View Shopping Mall.
Tiny Lives provides support for families at the special care baby unit at Newcastle’s Royal Victoria Infirmary.
Louise Carroll, from the fund, said: “We are very grateful to the Rotary Club of Whitley Bay for choosing Tiny Lives as one of its charities to support. This means that we can continue to help over 700 families each year.”
Tore said: “Being able to support Tiny Lives is a fitting end to my year as president.”
