This #FundraisingFriday is packed full of amazing people and companies flying the flag for CHSF and raising much-needed funds for babies, children and adults with congenital heart disease in our region – so let’s waste no time in meeting them… Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

Excel Childcare: Summer Fayre

Lisa (CHSF Community Fundraiser) & Katie Bear visited Excel Childcare to receive a cheque for their kind donation.

Nursery Manager, Laura said:

A child joined us who had a problem with her heart, and it was through Molly we learnt about the brilliant work of Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.

We wanted to get on board and fundraise. We now have a few children who have had heart surgery and would like to thank CHSF for their support.

Mercedes-Benz Trucks Ltd, Barnsley: Cake & Jewellery Sale

Ruth Sylvester said:

On 26th September we held a bake and jewellery sale at our Used Commercial Vehicle site Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK Ltd in Barnsley with the funds raised to be donated to Children’s Heart Surgery fund in memory of my brave and beautiful nephew Lucas Tewson.

I want to say a massive thank you to all my friends and colleagues who helped, contributed and donated to raise £1300 for the fund, including the £250 donated by Mercedes-Benz Trucks.

I would like to thank everyone at CHSF for the amazing work they do and hope this donation will help them to give the same support to other families that my brother and his wife received through very difficult times.

Also a thank you to everyone at Leeds Congenital Heart Unit who cared for Lucas, the work and devotion to their patients as a team is beyond words.

Lastly to Lucas who’s bravery and fight allowed us all to have our precious memories of him. God Bless.
