The Sun launches a Christmas appeal to raise money for Bliss
The Sun newspaper's Light Up Christmas appeal launched on Saturday, 24 November with stories about Charlotte, Rosie, Ruby, Aria, Nylah and Grayson; six babies who spent their first-ever Christmas on the neonatal unit.
Funds raised in this Christmas appeal will help Bliss achieve its ambition of reaching every baby born premature or sick and their families with its information and support services.
The newspaper will also be organising Christmas care packages to deliver to parents who are spending Christmas on neonatal units across the country.
Bliss Chief Executive Caroline Lee-Davey says: "We are so grateful to The Sun for choosing to support Bliss this Christmas. With the help and generosity of The Sun readers, Bliss will be able to reach even more babies born premature or sick and their families with support this Christmas and beyond."
As a part of the Light Up Christmas appeal, a journalist from The Sun spent 24 hours on the frontline of a neonatal intensive care unit at Bradford Royal Infirmary. The article can be viewed here.
