World Prematurity Awareness Day
Friday 17th November 2023
Did you know that 1 in 10 babies is born prematurely?
You can help us raise awareness, celebrate and remember babies that have been born too soon.
If you know of buildings or landmarks that would be keen to support us, please complete our 1lluminate Me form. If it's not possible this year, please let us know if you'd like to assist with raising awareness in the future.
People have chosen to Go Purp1e in supporting our #1in10Babies campaign by fundraising through bake sales, wearing purple, lighting their house or producing special events of their own.
