Baxter Healthcare helped raise awareness of World Prematurity Day
Baxter partnered with leading charity Bliss to raise awareness of World Prematurity Day (WPD), which was held on Friday 17 November. WPD is a global movement and was established to raise awareness of premature birth, the needs of babies who are born early or born needing specialist care and the impact this can have on families.
To recognise the day, Baxter's employees across three of its UK and Ireland sites including the head office in Compton, Newbury, undertook many different activities to raise £1,000 for Bliss and increase awareness of premature birth. Fun activities included a baby themed Bake Off style competition and a guess the baby competition. The events culminated in a "Little Lights Walk" through the village where the office is based, attended by employees, family members and local residents.
