The Sun on Sunday Christmas Blankets for Babies Appeal

Knit for Prem Babies

We are so grateful to Sun on Sunday readers for supporting their Christmas campaign to help families on neonatal units to receive a baby blanket to treasure this Christmas. Find out more about how to get involved below.

Bliss Chief Executive, Caroline Lee-Davey, said: "We know it's so hard to have a baby sick in neonatal care at any time of year, and even more so at Christmas. It's great that the Sun on Sunday, and their fabulous readers, can help to raise awareness of the support that Bliss can offer these families, as well as bring a personal touch of a knitted baby blanket for them to treasure.

The COVID pandemic is making it even harder for parents to be with their babies in hospital this winter, so support from the Sun on Sunday's readers will really help these families know they're not alone."

Our knitting patterns are available to download for free but if you use them we hope you'll consider making a donation to enable our vital work supporting babies and their families to continue at this particularly challenging time.

If you've had a baby born premature or sick or have been affected by any of the stories you have read in the Sun on Sunday, please know that we are here with information and support. You can find out more at:
