Christmas reunion.

CHILDREN and parents who have experienced life on the Special Care Baby Unit at Newcastle's RVI are looking forward to a Christmas reunion party at St James' Park.

The event, hosted by Tiny Lives charity, at 11am on Saturday November 21, will give parents a chance to meet others who have been through a similar experience and catch up with nurses and doctors who took care of their little fighters.

The day will include lots of Christmas fun such as meeting Santa Claus, a magician, disco, soft play and a quiz for the children and parents.

Last year, more than 450 people attended the party.

Andrea Atkinson, Tiny Lives fundraising manager said: "This event is what makes Tiny Lives worthwhile, seeing over 180 miracle children celebrating life, but deep down knowing if it was not for the Special Care Baby Unit they might not be here."

If your child has experienced time on the Special Care Baby Unit at the RVI and you would like to attend the reunion party, call Louise Carroll on (0191) 222 0945 or e-mail louise@communityfoundation.org.uk
