TINY hearts have been given a big boost thanks to a bunch of mums who organised a charity event at the Civic.

Scores of parents, grandparents and little ones turned out for the baby and children's event organised by Kiddie Kaboodle, where they could buy or sell baby and children's items and find out about local children's events.

It was held to benefit the Tiny Hearts Appeal, which aims to raise £1m to support the development of a new special care baby unit at Barnsley Hospital.
