As part of our fundraising, we organised a sponsored walk for children. We had our big party night in October, but we thought as we are raising money for babies, it would be nice to organise an event where children and families could take part too!
On the 23rd July 2017 over 80 people young and old joined us for our Bliss Little Heros walk. There were some fantastic costumes and lots of people made an effort dressing up as Spider-Man, Wonder Woman and the Incredible Hulk!
The day before it had poured down, but the sun shone for us and it was a glorious morning. The walk was only 1 mile long, but for considering some of the little ones haven’t been walking long it was quite a way! April decided to fall asleep at the beginning of the walk, but the majority of children walked it…some even ran it!
We had a bake sale as well and were inundated with bakes and cakes and local hair salon ‘Salon Rouge’ came along and did Glitter Tattoos for us, which proved really popular.
Many people collected sponsorship, which was amazing and went along way to helping us raise more money than we imagined! In total we raised over £1,600, which was all donated to BLISS.
This has pushed our fundraising total to over £13,500!!!!!!!
We are going to have a bit of a break from fundraising. We feel we have been able to give something back to the charities and hospitals who helped us, but if there is ever anything we have to do for charity we will always raise money for other premature babies.
