We have had a fabulous weekend of fundraising! Our 5.80 Challenge participants have completed a variety of exciting and energetic tasks based on the number 58, to raise much-needed funds towards our aim to save 580 babies’ lives by 2022.

This included some beautiful countryside walks and runs with all generations of the family and canine companions – and to off-set all the exercise, a challenge to bake 58 delicious brownies too.

Challenges were happening in both snow and glorious sunshine all over the UK, including in Aldershot, Belfast, the Eskdale Valley in Cumbria, and on the South Downs – anywhere and anything was possible.

We are so proud of all our Twins Trust fundraisers and their achievements.

Your generous support will help us to continue and extend our work with NHS maternity units across the UK, developing and sharing improved specialist knowledge about multiple pregnancy needs. Better care and understanding will help to reduce the risks to babies, during pregnancy and birth, and in their first few weeks of life.  Currently our Twins Trust Centre of Research and excellence and our Maternity Engagement Team work with 40 NHS units. You can help us to increase the number of medical professionals we can reach to make a vital difference.
