4th March – Cake sale in aid of BLISS
We held a cake sale to help raise money for BLISS baby charity. We raised £35 which will go towards helping babies who are born poorly/premature. As many of you may know one of our long standing volunteers has worked as a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse for well over 12 years. The NICU is a place where the majority of the public have never, and will never experience. They care for the smallest and most fragile of patients and their families. BLISS exists to give every baby born premature or sick in the UK the best chance of survival and quality of life. We champion their right to receive the best care by supporting families, campaigning for change and supporting professionals, and enabling life-changing research.
