In 2022 SSNAP will be celebrating 40 years of supporting the sick newborn, their parents and the amazing NHS staff that care for them on the neonatal unit at The John Radcliffe Hospital.
To mark this incredible occasion, we have launched the '#SSNAP40 Together Challenge,' our 40th Anniversary Appeal looking to raise an additional £40,000 for the charity. Enabling SSNAP to be be even more of a life-line for our tiny patients and their parents whom we support every day on the neonatal unit, when they need us most.
Please help us reach this target by taking part in one (or more!) of our epic fundraising events below, or why not organise your own?! We promise you will have fun and won't be disappointed, but at the same time it will give you that amazing feeling of knowing you are doing your bit to help our little hero's and other families in your community, by coming together to make a real difference.
