She said: "We would like to thank Mr Norman Dunn for the old photos of South Shields books we still have for sale behind the bar.

“To raise all that amount from £1 a number raffle is amazing and we are continuing to sell book until they are sold, they can be collected from the pub available everyday for £10.”

Sinia who is also mum to Leoni, 16 and Charlie, 14 and step-mum to Graham’s daughter Emma is looking forward to the weekend event, which she’s expecting to be a busy day.

She added: “Our newly amended stage area means we have a dance floor for the busiest times.”

The Charlie & Carter Foundation (CCF) provides financial support to parents of seriously ill children with life-limiting conditions that require 24 hour nursing care or specialist nursing facilities.

It was set up by parents Chris and Sarah, from South Shields, tragically lost their infant sons Charlie and Carter to serious health conditions.
