The Fertility Partnership Donates £45,150 to Bliss Charity
The Fertility Partnership clinics – Oxford Fertility, Boston Place, GCRM Belfast, GCRM Glasgow, Nurture Fertility, Simply Fertility, Thames Valley Fertility and Wessex Fertility – together donate £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, we have supported Bliss, who offer a wide range of free services for the families of premature and sick babies. They are also the creators of the Bliss Baby Charter, a practical framework to help neonatal units assess and improve their levels of family-centred care.
On Thursday 7th December, our CEO Andrew Came visited the Bliss offices in London to transfer the £21,550 raised in 2016-2017. In total this means an impressive £45,150 has been donated.
Bliss, which provides one-to-one support to over 6,200 parents last year alone, was selected as our supported charity in 2015 following a companywide vote of over 350 employees, based on our shared values of care, expertise, passion, trust and innovation.
Chief Executive at Bliss Caroline Lee-Davey said: “Bliss is incredibly grateful to everyone at the Fertility Partnership for their continued 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 our goal of ensuring that every single baby born premature or sick across the UK has the best chance of survival and quality of life.”
Andrew Came, CEO 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 been able to make such a positive impact via our support for Bliss.”
For the next two years The Fertility Partnership is supporting Sands – the Stillbirth and Neonatal Deaths Charity from 2017-2019, and we hope to do just as well for them.
