CHARITY PUSH: Caroline Gardiner with her baby Serena

YOUNG mum Caroline Gardiner is helping others by organising a buggy push in aid of premature baby charity Bliss.

Up to 80 parents and babies so far plan to join the Bliss Buggy Push this Sunday at 11am from Torre Abbey Meadows in Torquay.

Caroline, mother of one-year-old Serena, said: "I am very lucky that I had a healthy baby and didn't have to use Bliss.

"But I have friends who had premature babies who are so grateful and I wanted to do something to help.

"We have about 80 people involved which includes babies in buggies. More than half the people involved have used the help and support of Bliss, including a friend whose baby was born prematurely who is coming down from Cardiff to take part too.

"We are aiming to raise £1,000.

"If the weather is really bad like it's been recently, it will be postponed so were hoping it stays dryish.

"We will be walking from Torre Abbey meadows near the old balloon site, going along Torbay Road to the harbourside, along Cary Parade, back to Belgrave Road, and up Lucius Street ending at the Playcafe next to Riley's snooker hall in Union Street."
