TEENY Fundraiser raises £500

9 August 2023

Did you know, you can start your Blue Skies fundraising adventure at any age? It’s never too early or late to make a positive impact!

Little Verity kick started her fundraising journey on her first Birthday! Her family had the fantastic idea of, instead of traditional gifts, they asked friends and family to donate to Blue Skies in her honour! When Verity was born, 8 weeks early, her and her family received amazing care from the Neonatal Unit at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals. The family wanted to say thanks to the staff and the ward and celebrate at the same time!

“We wanted to raise funds for the Neonatal Unit as a thank you to the wonderful team who supported us as a family at a very difficult time in our lives.
Verity was born 8 weeks early and received the most amazing care at Blackpool Victoria Hospital, with special thanks to our amazing consultant Karl and Sonographer, Jenny, who monitored baby V so carefully throughout, we are forever grateful.”

Jenn Cuffe – Mother to Verity

“Isn’t it amazing to the the community getting involved with Blue Skies? Age is just a number when it comes to fundraising. We’ve got a bunch of incredible fundraisers from the tiniest tots  and coolest teens to the amazing adults. All putting their unique spin on raising funds for us. It’s heart warming to see the dedication in so many different ways.”
