I work within the Leeds General Infirmary Cardiology Department.

My colleagues were taking part in a skydive to raise funds for this amazing charity as they work closely with children’s heart surgery team and knew I’d be up for the challenge.

I learnt about the great work the charity provide for both patients and families and had a great time raising money, particularly with the support of my children’s school (Hoyle Court Primary in Baildon) with one child so inspired by the charity he even used his own savings to donate!

To top it all off the skydive was an amazing experience that I will never forget and will perhaps have to do again in the future. Keep up the good work, CHSF!

Clowns Nursery, Clay Cross

We decided to raise money for the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund as it was a charity very close to our hearts.

We have a little boy in our care who has Congenital Heart Disease and also Natalie our Nursery manager has a little girl with a heart defect which has been repaired recently.

We have been able to see first hand the amazing job that CHSF do and we wanted to give something back to say thank you. We have had lots of fun raising money for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund by doing lots of different things.

A summer fair, bake offs making lots of yummy cakes, pyjama days, and Wear Red Day. We will be raising more money for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund again this year and we can’t wait to have lots of fun doing it.

The Goods Shed @ Dewsbury Railway Station

A huge thank you to the staff & customers of The Goods Shed, Dewsbury.

They have displayed CHSF collection tins and raised a fantastic amount over the last few years. Sadly The Goods Shed is now closed so our Community Fundraiser Lisa went out to meet Dave & Chris to say thank you for all their efforts.

St.Stephen’s Pre-School, Kirkstall

St Stephen’s pre-school took part in CHSF’s Wear Red Day last month and Lisa paid a visit with Katie Bear to say thank you!

We decided to do Wear Red Day to support Ruby and Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.

I’m also a part of Leeds DA Camping and Caravanning Club who also raised money for CHSF last year. oOn the day we wore red, had a cake raffle and a cake stall.
