Light up the night with your own sponsored walk for World Prematurity Day.

What is a Bliss Little Lights walk?

Bliss Little Lights is a sponsored walk with torches and lanterns to light the way for the 100,000 babies born premature or sick each year.

If you know neonatal staff who went out of their way during your neonatal journey, a family member who offered a listening ear or you want to honour the babies at the heart of everything – walk for those touched by the neonatal experience.

You will be joining super fundraisers across the UK taking part in sponsored walks and lighting up the night.

When can I do a Little Lights walk?

Bliss Little Lights is one of our fundraising events for World Prematurity Day, which takes place on 17 November every year.

You might like to join families across the UK walking on the 13 November for babies in neonatal care, but you can do a Little Lights walk on any date that suits you.

Date:  Monday 1st November, 2021 – Tuesday 30th November, 2021

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?

  • We have published new research on the devastating impact on parents locked out of neonatal care due to COVID-19 restrictions. We are using this research to help influence policy and minimise separation for families.
  • Our clear and comprehensive information is vital to illuminate the way for families in neonatal care.
  • 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.
