We know that your first priority when making a Will is to provide for your loved ones, but many people find that even after they have done this they can leave something to a cause they care about. 

Leaving Children’s Heart Surgery Fund a gift in your will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways you can support us. It costs nothing during your lifetime but will have a powerful impact for generations to come.

We promise to use your gift to develop and grow the work we do for children affected by Congenital Heart Disease in our region. Thanks to your gift, we will be able to support Leeds Congenital Heart Centre 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.

There are a number of ways you might want to remember our charity in your Will: you could decide to leave a specific sum, a share of your estate or a specific item. Every gift is gratefully received and sincerely valued.

For more information, you can read our supportive document.

If you are thinking about leaving a gift to Children’s Heart Surgery Fund in your Will, the best thing is to see your solicitor. They will be able to advise you how to write or amend your Will, and how to make a legacy to your charity.

You can also download the list of local solicitors we recommend, who have agreed to support us.

Also, Legacy Alliance has a dedicated page for CHSF and offers 20% off the normal prices of its Will writing services to all our supporters.

“The loss of our aunt was a very sad time for us all. But now having seen the difference that her donation has made to help all the people at the CHSF carry out their brilliant work, it has given us a real sense of pride in her wish to help the children who visit the ward. We now feel a strong connection with everyone involved which will last forever.”

“When our son was diagnosed we were very grateful for all the facilities that were available. It came as a surprise to learn just how much was the result of fundraising and not provided by the NHS. We are forever grateful and want to put something back to help others who may find themselves in a similar position.”

“It’s no exaggeration to say that without the support of CHSF our jobs would be impossible. For example, by using the ultrasound machines recently provided by the charity, we are reducing the risks for every single child coming to the catheter theatre.”

“An amazing charity! Without it many children would not survive their heart conditions. Their fundraising helped provide the equipment that kept my son alive and eventually allowed him to pull through and recover from serious heart surgery. The charity extends to providing accommodation and support to the children’s parents and family during what is a very difficult time. Long may CHSF continue and be fully supported by all.”
