It’s Friday at last and what better way to kick-start the weekend than to celebrate more of our super supporters. There are so many ways you can raise money for CHSF and this week’s #FundraisingFriday champions show you how it’s done…

Job Centre, Leeds Eastgate

The team from Leeds Eastgate Job Centre paid a visit to CHSF HQ to pay in their fundraising. The team said:

We chose to fundraise for Children’s Heart Surgery Fund as one of our colleague’s, Naomi Wilkinson, has been attending the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit with her daughter since she was born.

Olivia was born with half a heart and without the unit her life would be very different. She has just started high school which is amazing! Naomi and her family have been through such a lot and we wanted to support a charity that is now close to all our hearts.

Hopefully the money we have raised through taking part in Kapow! and our ‘Made with Love’ event will help other families in the future.

Fantastic effort guys! What a wonderful thing to do for a colleague – you should all be very proud! Thank you!

Friends & Family of Alfie Brownridge

Alfie’s Mum Samantha said:

We supported CHSF by asking for donations instead of presents at Alfie’s christening. We chose Children’s Heart Surgery Fund as Alfie is 7 months old has had two open heart surgeries at the LGI.

Thanks to your amazing charity we have stayed in accommodation you provide, used the extensive equipment used on the ward and at home which has been funded by CHSF – and all the support you give families going through a difficult part of their rollercoaster journey. Also not forgetting Alfie’s Katie Bears, sat pride of place!

We thank you, CHSF, so much and our generous friends and family!

A huge thank you to all Alfie’s family and friends. Your donations will go straight back to helping children just like Alfie treated at the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit.

Lee Aslin

Lee did the skydive this September for CHSF. Lee came along to Oxford Place this week with his son Reggie to see the CHSF team and pay in his incredible fundraising!

Lee said:

I did the skydive to say thank you to Children’s Heart Surgery Fund because without them the chances are my little boy, Reggie, wouldn’t be here today.

Thank you so much Lee! We are so so grateful you chose to raise funds for CHSF. Everything we do is because of people exactly like yourself! #BecauseofYou
