We are delighted to have welcomed Luke Cameron, holder of the ‘Nicest Job in Britain’, to Bliss for the week.
Yesterday, Luke met Sandra Brown, a Bliss Nurse at The Jessop Wing of the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield. There, Luke learned more about the work Bliss Nurses do to provide practical advice, emotional support and guidance to families of vulnerable babies.
Luke was shown around the hospital’s neonatal unit and met the families of special care babies, including the parent of a 26 week old baby, and saw first-hand the care the service provides.
Before visiting the unit, Luke heard about the work Bliss does to support the families of special care babies from Bliss’ North West Co-ordinator, Kylie Hodges. Luke and Kylie also spent the morning discussing ideas for ways to promote volunteers’ good deeds via social media.
Luke said: “It was really interesting to learn about the work Bliss does to support the families of sick and premature babies. I had a wonderful time visiting a neonatal unit and meeting the lovely staff and parents of special care babies.”
Luke runs ‘The Good Deed Diary’ - a blog he updates detailing the selfless acts he has done for others. He is spending the year helping charities across the country as part of ‘The Nicest Job in Britain’.
