Money Raised for Children’s Ward
Tristan Raine and his wife Emma Raine held a raffle to raise money to buy presents for the children who were spending Christmas at the Treetops Ward at the University Hospital of North Durham.
The couple received fantastic donations from the stall holders at the Consett Farmer Market. The winner of the raffle was Cameron Boyd from Medomsley.
They raised just under £200 and bought some fantastic presents for the children.
The staff are Janet Hughes (ward manager), Annette Motton (staff nurse), Tracey Davison and Julie Neeson
