Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh supports TinyLife

Councillor Brian Bloomfield MBE the newly elected Mayor of Lisburn City and Castlereagh Council has pledged his support for TinyLife during his Mayoral term.

At his first council meeting Mayor Bloomfield outlined why he chose TinyLife as his charity.  “The arrival of a new baby is a most wonderful time for both the parents and the extended family.  I know from first-hand knowledge when that baby is born prematurely life can suddenly become very difficult and full of uncertainty.  My grandson was born eight weeks prematurely and this was a very stressful and worrying time for all the family, particularly of course for his mother and father.

Having seen the support TinyLife provided to my daughter and son-in-law, as it does for many families, I am absolutely delighted to be working with the charity in my role as Mayor.  As well as raising funds for its essential work, I hope that we can raise the profile of TinyLife locally".
