Editor's Viewpoint

The TinyLife organisation, which supports families who have had premature babies, is a great boon to many mothers at a time when they are seriously concerned about the survival chances of their newborns.

Catherine Smith knows all about those concerns, for 22 years ago her twin daughters defied the odds to survive. Now Catherine, who runs a bridalwear shop in Greyabbey, is donating £50 for each dress sold during her current sale, and is stocking TinyLife favours to raise money for the charity.

It is also a way of raising the profile of the organisation and encouraging others to donate to it. Her's is an inspiring story.
