Baby Dinosaurs owner, Lisa Hensby, will be hosting the festive event with all proceeds going to Scunthorpe General Hospital's Maternity Bereavement Suite (MBS).  

The MBS appeal, organised by the hospital's official charity The Health Tree Foundation (HTF), aims to provide a safe haven on the central delivery suite for parents who experience the tragic loss of their baby. 

The event will feature entertainment for the whole family including a visit from Santa Claus himself. Baby Dinosaurs owner, Lisa said: 'I have been through two miscarriages myself and I know how hard it was then to be sat surrounded by happy Mums to be, when all I wanted was to be happy to.  'Losing my first two babies was the hardest things I have ever been through. So I want to help families who have been through such a tragedy to feel more comfortable in a private environment. I will do my utmost to raise as much money as I possibly can for this amazing cause.'
