This week, Thomas has learnt how to switch on the camera in my iPhone from when the phone is in standby mode. He knows that if he flicks the screen up, the camera comes on and if he presses the white button on the screen, he can take photos. Unfortunately, he discovered this when I gave him my phone when I nipped to the toilet after him while we were out. Cue lots of photos of me on the toilet on my phone memory! I am sharing this because I do want you to make the same mistake as me and give your toddler your phone to ‘look after’ while you are sorting out a call of nature for yourself!
An unexpected joy of parenthood eh?
Britax, the leader in child mobility who enable family freedom, is proud to announce it will once again be sponsoring the Bliss Buggy Push, a series of family-friendly 5km buggy walks or runs across the UK, designed to help raise money for Bliss, the special care baby charity.
This is the third year that Britax will sponsor the charity initiative, and following the success of last year’s 40 events, organisers say the 2015 fundraiser has the potential to be the biggest one yet.
Bliss is once again encouraging people across the country to organise a Buggy Push at a park near them to raise money to help premature and sick babies as well as their families. One in every nine babies is born premature or sick – that is around 80,000 babies every year.
Partnering with Miffy, the iconic children’s character, the headline London Buggy Push is taking place on 13 June to celebrate Miffy’s 60th birthday. Alongside sponsorship of the event, Britax will also be offering families the chance to win one of its stylish and award winning Britax Affinity pushchairs. The three highest fundraisers who take part in the main events at either London, Manchester, Leeds and Edinburgh will be able to select a light-weight Affinity in their preferred choice of colour and take home the matching Cosytoes and Changing Bag – the perfect prize for any mums on the go looking to make a fashion statement.
Amy Voller, Brand Director EMEA from Britax comments, “As a brand devoted to helping families find their freedom, we are delighted to once again be working with Bliss. Through this partnership we can not only encourage parents to get out and about with their little ones, we can also raise awareness for a fantastic cause that is very close to our hearts. We are behind every single family that chooses to take part – best of luck!”
