At Children’s Heart Surgery Fund we love to celebrate supporters who have gone above and beyond for CHSF and every month we select a new fundraiser to shout about!
Everybody say ‘hello’ to Reggie and Honey-Rose…
We spoke to Reggie’s mum, Michelle Aslin who told us a little bit more about the duo’s fundraising achievements!
Back in August we held a fun day in Grimsby which had lots going on – face paints, bouncy castles, a charity football game. The police even came with armed officers, a boat and the the police dogs! On the day we raised money for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund and three other charities – one being the charities that supports Eckersley House.
Reggie’s dad, Lee, did a skydive in September alongside Reggie’s sister’s friend Amelia.
We absolutely loved planning the fun day. Although it was quite stressful it was so worth it and we are already planning our next event now.
We would definitely recommend going for it if you have thought of doing some fundraising. It can take quite a long time and lots of effort but get the kids to bed and plan with a glass of G&T haha!
We decided to fundraise for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund because without the charity we wouldn’t have been able to be with our children or meet other families going through the same journey as us. Plus the support from all the staff at CHSF is the best!
CHSF was able to help both my family and Honey-Rose’s family stay with our children during their surgeries – they helped provide vital toys and DVD players to keep them entertained whilst they were recovering. But most importantly if it wasn’t for CHSF we wouldn’t have the theatres or hospital equipment to give our children the chance.
To Children’s Heart Surgery Fund – there are not enough thank yous, not enough hugs in this world to give you for making our journeys a little easier. The events you hold so our children can all come together are just so lovely. To see all the warriors dancing and loving life is the most magical thing ever. Each member of staff is an angel and we love you all. Thank you so much.
Because of you our worse times were made easier ♥️
