THE FERTILITY PARTNERSHIP DONATES £45,150 TO BLISS
Did you know that at The Fertility Partnership we donate £5 for every fresh cycle IVF we complete across every clinic to charity?
For the last two years, the Fertility Partnership has supported Bliss, a charity which supports families of premature and sick babies. It is also the creator of the Bliss Baby Charter, a practical framework to help neonatal units assess and improve family-centred care.
The Fertility Partnership’s Chief Executive Andrew Came visited Bliss to present a cheque for £21,550, raised by the IVF clinics throughout 2016/2017. This brings the grand total of money raised to £45,150.
Bliss Chief Executive Caroline Lee-Davey said: “We are incredibly grateful to everyone at the Fertility Partnership for their support. Each year more than 95,000 babies are born needing neonatal care across the UK. With the generosity of supporters like the Fertility Partnership, we are one step closer to ensuring that every single baby born premature or sick across the UK has the best chance of survival and quality of life.”
Andrew Came, Chief Executive at the Fertility Partnership, added: “Our teams in all our clinics across the UK have been extremely proud to support such a worthy charity. We are passionate about babies and know that every child is precious. We are pleased to have made such a positive impact by supporting Bliss, which provides one-to-one support to 6,200 parents each year.”
Bliss was identified as the Fertility Partnership’s chosen charity following a vote of over 350 employees, based on shared values of care, expertise, passion, trust and innovation.
A new charity has been chosen for the next two years – Sands, the Stillbirth and Neonatal Deaths Charity.
