BENIDORM star Shaun Foster-Conley helped to raise more than £30,000 for some of the region’s most critically-ill youngsters.

The Wearside singer and TV star was among the celebrities attending the Tiny Lives Black and White Party.

The 240 partygoers raised the amount for the Tiny Lives fund, which supports the Special Baby Care unit at Newcastle’s RVI.

The unit offers help to premature and poorly babies from all over the North of England, and looks after more than 600 babies a year.

Money raised from the event will go towards the costs of caring for the babies, and help to pay for staff training, equipment and research.

Andrea Atkinson, fund-raising Manager for Tiny Lives, said: “We are overjoyed at the amount raised at the party, and hugely grateful to all those who helped us reach this amazing total.”
