For the first #FundraisingFriday of 2020 we have inspirational supporters raising money in all sorts of ways!
From an open-gym and a community music festival to a local heart warrior jumping out of a plane for a good cause – we can’t wait to see what you will all get up to in 2020 to support CHSF!
The family of Ashton Clark
We wanted to support CHSF because in March 2019 our son had open heart surgery at Leeds Children’s Hospital by Mr Jaber!
The care and support we received whilst there was out of this world and we felt we needed to give something back – so we decided to fundraise for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund!
With the help of Intensity Cheer and Dance Rotherham we ran a charity raffle and a charity open-gym that enabled us to raise money to support those in our position and to give something back to the fantastic charity!
Heart Warrior Leah Kitchen did a Skydive for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund back in September 2019. Leah said:
I wanted to raise money for this amazing charity after they helped me so much.
In December 2017 I underwent emergency open heart surgery.
They were all outstanding and I felt I wanted to give something back to say thank you – and this was the perfect way.
The Miners Arms, Morley
Peter Pinder, landlord of The Miners Arms in Morley, Leeds, organised a charity music festival to support Children’s Heart Surgery Fund. Morley Fest 2019 featured a whole host of local bands and artists and drew a fantastic crowd from the local community.
This is the second year customers and staff of the pub have supported CHSF and we really appreciate all the efforts they have made to once again raise a fantastic amount.
A huge thanks to everyone who attended and donated on the day.
