Bliss Little Lights Walks

Light up the night this winter 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?

Bliss Little Lights is one of our fundraising events for world prematurity day, which takes place on 17th November every year. You might like to hold your event close to this day, but you can do a Little Lights walk on any date that suits your household. We just ask that you follow the local Government guidelines for your area.

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.
