Bliss advent calendar day 16

Leighanne and Sarah

Welcome to day 16 of the Bliss Advent Calendar 2015. We will open a new window each day revealing stories and videos relating to special care babies and the work that Bliss does. Each day is kindly sponsored by a corporate partner, to help raise even more towards improving the outcomes for every baby born premature or sick in the UK.

We would love you to share this on your social networks using #Blissadvent.

How you can support Bliss

There are a number of ways you can get involved and support Bliss, to help us to reach every premature or sick baby in the UK. Whether you are looking to fundraise, volunteer, take part in an event, campaign or make a donation, we have opportunities to suit you.


Bliss could not carry out its work without the hard work and dedication of our fundraisers. We have lots of events that supporters can take part in, such as our Bake for Bliss event or Little Lights Walks. Or, if you prefer something a bit more active, why not run a marathon?

If you can’t find anything that suits you, you can hold your own event. A fundraising pack is available to download from our website and contains lots of tips and ideas. Visit the events pages of our website for more information.


If you would like to donate, please support our Christmas appeal to help babies born premature or sick. Your donation will help us to ensure that they have a better chance of surviving and of reaching their full potential. No matter how big or small, your donation is greatly appreciated.


Bliss campaigns nationally and locally for the best care and support for premature and sick babies and their families.

By lobbying government, contacting NHS trusts and forging other important relationships we can influence decision makers on a whole range of issues. In the past these have included staffing cuts, school starting age and better financial support for parents.

If you would like to join us to help make a lasting change, to improve the life chances of vulnerable babies and the support their families receive, join our Action for Bliss network


Bliss has a large network of volunteers that operate throughout the country running support groups, visiting families in hospital, and providing one to one support to parents. Our roles are designed to be flexible to fit around the time you have to give, whether you have a couple of hours a week, or just a few hours each month.

If you think you have something to offer to parents of babies born premature or sick, please visit the volunteering section of our website and have a look at our volunteering roles.
