#FundraisingFriday: August 16

Here comes the rain again! But the wet weather can’t dampen our super supporters’ spirits! Let’s give a huge #FundraisingFriday round of applause to all those raising vital funds for CHSF this week. Let’s meet some of them…

Jimmy Blackhurst: Cycle

Jimmy said:

I decided to support Children’s Heart Surgery Fund because when my grandson, Myles, had his open heart surgery, the Charity did so much to support him and his mummy and daddy.

I passed sponsor forms to pretty much everyone I knew to ask people to sponsor me for cycling from Liverpool to Leeds.

It was a hard ride but definitely worth the £900 raised!

Amazing Jimmy and thank you so much for supporting CHSF! Now have that well-earned rest! PHEW!

Gina & Vicki: Leeds 10K

Gina said:

We wanted to run the Leeds 10k to continue to raise awareness and money for the amazing Children’s Heart Surgery Fund. Without them my daughter Rae would not be the happy, healthy girl she is now. It was great to see so many runners and supporters of CHSF out on the course on the day!

Bravo Gina and Vicki! More fantastic fundraising for CHSF! Thanks for your continued support! #BecauseofYou

Friends and Family of Phoebe Sixsmith

Debs, Phoebe’s Mum, said:

“We did a big tombola and cake stall along with a bucket collection at Whitby as part of the tractor pulling event. We raised £1130 in total!

We support Children’s Heart Surgery Fund as Phoebe had open heart surgery at the age of 12 weeks old which saved her life. Thank you!

From all of us at CHSF, thank you to the Sixsmiths for your ongoing support and of course, thanks everyone who gave a donation, big or small to the tombola and bucket collection!
