I’m George and I’m 1 in 100!

“I’m George and I have had three open heart surgeries at the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit. My latest surgery was in June 2020, during the coronavirus pandemic.

By taking part in the 1 in 100 challenge, you are helping heart warriors just like me. Thank you.”

Days until 2022...








Challenge yourself to take up a new hobby or finally quit a that habit.

Do it before the year is out and do it for the 1 in 100 babies born with CHD in our region. What will do?

Keep it simple!

Go back to basics and save a little bit each day. If you save £1 every day from 1 January until 10 April, you will have your £100!

Open a JustGiving page and get saving…

What would you do with £100?

At CHSF £100 could pay for…

  • Three nights accommodation at hospital for parents while their child is having surgery
  • A Katie Bear, medal and certificate for a heart warrior after open heart surgery
