Want to be part of Bliss Little Lights in a different way? Bliss supporter Lisa hosted a garden party 'I made and sold nearly 200 candles, each of which had a special message written on them and we lit them all in our back garden surrounded by family and friends. Even people I didn’t know got on board with this event with us because they realised the importance of Bliss and we had a fantastic evening' If you'd like to do something similar click on the solo mission button above.
