Bliss Little Lights Walks

Light up the night this November for premature and sick babies with your own sponsored walk

What is a Bliss Little Lights walk?

Bliss Little Lights is a sponsored walk with torches and lanterns to light the way and show families in neonatal care that they are not alone.

You will be joining super fundraisers across the UK taking part in sponsored walks and lighting up the night for the 100,000 babies born premature or sick each year.

When can I do a Little Lights walk?

We had hoped to host our annual walks in London and Glasgow on Saturday 14 November but sadly this will not be possible due to COVID-19.

We are encouraging people to do their own walks on that evening, according to local Government guidelines, so that we can safely light up the night across the UK for babies born premature or sick together.

However, you can choose any date and time that works for you.

Date:  Saturday 14th November, 2020 – Monday 30th November, 2020

Location:  Wherever you are

Registration fee:  None

Fundraising pledge:  As much as you can!

How are we shining a light for families in neonatal care?

  • Our clear and comprehensive information is vital to illuminate the way for families in neonatal care at this time.
  • We’re supporting neonatal units to reinstate unrestricted access for parents, as well as campaigning for parents suspected of having COVID-19 to be prioritised for testing to minimise separation from their baby.
  • Our email and video support services provide families with somewhere to turn for emotional support to brighten their neonatal journey.

We spent hours in a dark neonatal unit researching procedures, diagnoses, prognoses, and while there were scary stories online, Bliss always had accurate and trustworthy information.
