How we make a difference to more than 17,500 babies, children and adults in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire every year…

Improving the lives of our heart patients is at the core of our charity. Thanks to the incredible generosity shown by our supporters, we’ve been able to provide the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit with revolutionary medical equipment.

But our work doesn’t stop there. We know that caring for people with congenital heart disease involves much more than treating the heart itself, which is why we use a holistic approach to help the Heart, the Mind, the Family and the Future.

From fish tanks on the ward, contributions to living expenses, and distraction play equipment, we’re always on the lookout to help improve the lives of our heart patients.

The impact your Will donation will make…

Leaving a gift in your Will contributes enormously towards making our vision and mission a reality. With the help of Will donations, we are able to improve the lives of over 17,500 babies, children and adults who pass through the service each year.

As a wholly self-funded charity, it is your legacy donations that allow us to continue ours – supporting hearts for life.

Our promise to you…

We promise to use your gift to develop and grow the work we do for children affected by congenital heart disease in our region for generations to come.

Thanks to your gift, we will be able to support Leeds Congenital Heart Unit to become a recognised world class service by revolutionising patient facilities, which will enhance the whole patient experience.

You will help us stay ahead of the much needed ever-evolving technology and equipment to support this service and our patients.

How do I leave a legacy?

“The needs of the LCHU are growing and evolving rapidly – and the CHSF’s long-term strategy and vision to support hearts for life depend on the continued fundraising and engagement of our valued supporters.

“We’d love you to be part of our future, so we can continue to care for the Heart, the Mind, the Family and the Future of our patients.

“Thank you to each and every person who is considering leaving a legacy donation to the CHSF in their Will. Together we will support hearts for life.”
