Bliss advent calendar day four

Banknote auction raises £64,000 for Bliss

Bliss were thrilled to hear that some of the proceeds from a special banknote auction held by the Bank of England in October would be benefitting our work: to the tune of £64,000! The auction included a select group of low and interesting numbers of the new Polymer £5 note.

Bliss was chosen to benefit from the auction after being nominated by Simon Scorer, who works for the bank. Simon’s son Ben was born early, at 26 weeks and weighing only 1lb 13oz. Simon and his wife Vicky found the information and support available from Bliss a tremendous help as they coped with life on the neonatal unit and at home when Ben was discharged on oxygen, after 12 weeks in hospital.

Everyone at Bliss says a big thank you and happy Christmas to Simon and his colleagues at the Bank of England for this fantastic support.
