Carrick couple Angela and Matthew Wright will be getting in a spin in support of a premature baby charity.

The 12-hour ‘spinathon’ will take place on Wednesday, September 14 At Carrickfergus Amphitheatre and aims to raise vital funds for TinyLife - a charity “close to the hearts” of the family.

“The management at the Amphitheatre have kindly allowed us to use their facilities for what we are hoping will be a great fundraising event,” said Angela.

Family and friends of the couple will be taking turns keeping two spin bikes going from 8am to 8pm.

Every day in Northern Ireland six babies are born too soon, some arriving as early as 26 weeks and weighing as little as 1lb.

TinyLife is a small local charity providing emotional and practical support to the parents of premature babies across Northern Ireland, through their raft of Family Support Services.
