Visit from the Sick Children's Trust

Sick Children’s Trust – You may remember that this year our chosen charity to support has been 'The Sick Children’s Trust' that run 'Crawford House', which is temporary accomadation situated on the grounds of Newcastle Royal Victoria Infirmary Hospital. This is a service that supports families who would like to live on site close to their sick children during their time in hospital. This is a service that has recently helped out Mrs Pickering and has helped out my own family in the past. We were glad to welcome Emily Corney to Whitehaven, who travelled from Newcastle on Monday morning to come and speak to the children about the work of the charity and how the money raised will benefit families in need. It was with great pleasure that we could hand over a cheque of £775. Emily stopped and spoke to the children about the fundraisng ventures that have been held and she asked me to pass on many thanks to the community of Whitehaven for helping to raise our total.
