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 will be launching our #SSNAP40 Anniversary Appeal and #SSNAP40 Together Challenge, looking to raise an additional £40,000 for the charity - so that we can be even more of a life-line for the families and their babies that we support every day on the neonatal unit.
Please help us reach this target by taking part in one (or more!) of our epic fundraising events below. 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 others in your community, by coming together to make a real difference.
#SSNAP40 is the new 2022! Look forward to seeing you there x
