During the month of March 2019 Baby Sensory ran a ‘Senseathon’ to raise funds for The Neonatal Trust. This was a fun, themed event where parents and their babies and/or toddlers were invited to come along in Superhero themed fancy dress and were tasked with completing special fun ‘superhero challenges’ during the Senseathon classes, helping to rescue the Sun from the evil Saby Bensory while also raising funds and awareness to support other babies and families during their neonatal journey.
You can check out some of the awesome photos from the event below
Our heartfelt thanks to Baby Sensory and all those who participated in this wonderful event and choosing to support the work of The Neonatal Trust.
This support follows on from similar overseas Baby Sensory Senseathon events which raise funds for other neonatal causes (eg, Tommys in the UK).
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Toni and Andy from Baby Sensory Christchurch for sharing the neonatal journey of their gorgeous son Harry. You can read all about Harry’s unexpected early arrival here.
