The North of England P&I Association Limited, based on Newcastle Quayside have given Tyne Tail Jack a new home. Tyne Tail Jack celebrates the Newcastle and Gateshead Quayside and was originally sponsored on the trail by his new owners.
Kim Heaselden, Senior Executive (Communications) at The North of England P&I Association said:
“Our company always intended to purchase Tyne Tail Jack after sponsoring him on the trail. A lot of our members of staff have had first hand experience of the care St Oswald’s provides so the campaign was perfect for us to support. Tyne Tail jack is currently on a mini tour of the North East! Since December he has been visiting various schools in the region including Percy Hedley School and King’s Priory in Tynemouth. He will also be visiting St Patrick’s in Dipton soon. Tyne Tail Jack spent Christmas on the Children’s Ward at Northumbria hospital which brought a lot of Christmas cheer. Our Snowdog is proving to be very popular and the children at the schools and the hospital have enjoyed his visits.”
“The trail was a fantastic initiative for the region and we were pleased to support it. We are now delighted that Tyne Tail Jack can continue visiting schools around the region so a lot more children get the chance to meet him!”
