Whether you fundraise as a team or go it alone, this weeks #FundraisingFriday picks show us how it’s done! A special shout out to Aidan who had never been on a plane until he jumped out of one for CHSF!

St John Fisher School: Wear Red Day

St.John Fisher Catholic High School took part in Wear Red Day this year and raised an amazing amount for CHSF.

The School said:

We had a Spectacular Wear Red Day on Friday 1 February, wearing red for children being treated at the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit.

Thank you to staff and pupils for their generosity and raising this fantastic amount to support Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.

Well done everyone and thank you for your support!

Aidan Geraghty: Skydive

Aidan said:

I did this skydive for my Godson/Nephew – Noah Aidan Geraghty.

He was born with critical aortic stenosis and had his first open heart surgery at just 4 weeks old and a second OHS at 5 months old.

Thanks to a miracle and the defeating of odds Noah is here today thanks to everyone at the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit.

It’s amazing and this is why I chose to skydive. It was my first time in a plane ever and i jumped out of it. It was a thrill!

I just thought it’s a different way of me raising and giving back to you all. Just a shout out to all staff and heart babies. Amazing!
