It’s another fantastic Fundraising Friday, and we have caught up with FOUR more fabulous fundraisers to feature!

Freshpak, the Barnsley-based chilled food manufacturers, chose to fundraise for CHSF with a Cake Day.

Area Manager Laura Killeen summarised why they chose CHSF for this event:

We decided to raise funds for the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund because we had a member of staff here who gave birth to a beautiful little baby boy who had several problems in his first few days.


Due to complications her baby had to undergo major surgery on his heart at only ten days old – and he is now a fighting fit healthy 6-month old.


We wanted to celebrate his health and thank the team at Children’s Heart Surgery fund for making it a success.

A huge thank you to all at Freshpak!

Michaela Marshall and family ran a fundraising auction inspired by son Cody:

My little lad had been diagnosed with Gorlin-Goltz syndrome – he had a tumour inside his heart and underwent a 10 hour operation to remove 90% of it.


The operation which went well as we got told there was a 4/10 chance of losing him.


We would like to thank every single person involved, especially Ward 51, the staff and most of all Mr Jaber for doing the operation.

A huge thank you to everyone concerned!

Lucy Dart, family and friends have clubbed together in a variety of ways this year for CHSF.

The immediate family brought little Arthur into Oxford Place to tell us all about it:

Last October our baby boy Arthur was diagnosed with TGA at 1 day old.


Since we came home after his successful surgery, we, along with a group of fantastic family and friends have raised money to give back to CHSF for all that they did for us.


The main event was the Leeds 10K in July where 14 of us ran for team Arthur!

And last but not least, Team ‘Isaac’s Warriors’ completed the outdoor obstacle challenge Yorkshire Warrior in aid of our charity, and told us why:

CHSF is a charity that is important to us as Matt’s son, Isaac (who is also Dan’s nephew), underwent surgery to repair a VSD at Leeds General Infirmary back in July.


We wanted to support the charity to show how grateful we are for the care Isaac received.

 We’d like to thank everyone associated with the above fundraising, and EVERYONE who donates to Children’s Heart Surgery Fund – we can only do we do, #BecauseofYou.

Please Get Involved if you can!
