Children’s Heart Surgery Fund is the award winning charity supporting the Yorkshire heart unit at the Leeds General Infirmary. We fund equipment, staff posts, resources and training for those who work on the heart wards; and support patients with congenital heart disease and their families.
We are funded by generous donations from the general public and our corporate supporters, and by the amazing efforts of our fundraisers. We’re only able to help because of your support. Thank you!
