Buggy push organised in Eaton Park in Norwich

A mum of two is organising a sponsored buggy push in Norwich to raise money to help premature babies.

Elle Emanuel is now appealing for mums to sign up to take part in the fundraiser for the premature baby charity Bliss.

Mrs Emanuel, who recently moved to Newton Flotman from Essex with her husband Russ and children Hayden, four, and Mia, 15 months, came up with the idea for the buggy push because she wanted to meet other mums in the area while helping a children's cause.

The 33-year-old, of Alan Avenue, said: 'I've not had a premature baby but I know how hard it is as a parent with a newborn when they get poorly, so I can only imagine what these mums do go through when their children are in hospital. If it happened to me, or someone close to me, then it's nice to know there are people there who can give you the support.'

Bliss, the special care baby charity, offers guidance and information at a critical time in families' lives. The charity also funds ground-breaking research and campaigns for babies to receive the best possible level of care regardless of when and where they are born.

The buggy push will be taking place in Eaton Park at 11am on Friday, June 24.
