Stuart Carter volunteers with special care baby charity Bliss

A DAD from Bexley who goes “above and beyond” has received an award for his voluntary work with a special care baby charity.

Stuart Carter was presented with Bliss’s Dedication To Families award at a ceremony at City Hall in London last week.

The charity’s chief executive, Caroline Davey, praised Stuart for his passion for helping families, adding: “He goes above and beyond what is asked of him.”

Stuart, a copywriter, has supported Bliss since 2007 and volunteers on the charity’s helpline, which offers advice and support to the families and friends of anyone with a baby who is or has been in neonatal care.

His own daughter, Millie, was born at 26 weeks in 2005 and spent more than two months in the neonatal unit of two different hospitals.

Mr Carter said: “I was surprised and delighted to receive this award – surprised because I never imagined I was doing anything terribly special, but also delighted to be reminded that my work – and the work of all my fellow volunteers at Bliss – makes a real difference to people’s lives.”

Bliss is dedicated to improving care for babies who are born ill or prematurely and to supporting their families.
