How You Can Help Us

Every week, four children/young people go in to Yorkhill hospital for cardiac surgery. This does not include those who go in for less invasive surgery i.e. catheterisations, ballooning, stenting, etc. We rely on the generosity of people like you to help us to continue to support these ‘special bravehearts’. With your help they and their families can experience the joy and excitement of having a small wish granted to give strength and hope for a speedy recovery, and/or a short break for those families who have endured a long or difficult hospital stay.

From creating an event, setting up a regular giving or through fundraising and sponsorships, there are lots of ways you can donate. The type of event could be physical i.e. runs & jogs, swims, skydives, bike rides, walks & hikes or they could be more relaxing i.e. bingo, coffee morning, quiz night, etc. If creating an event of your own is not for you, please keep an eye on our events/fundraising page for organised events that may be of interest to you, family or friends. If you have any questions or would like some fundraising resources such as sponsor forms and posters, we’d love to hear from you.

Why not consider us as your nominated charity, whether this is at an individual level or corporate level and ask your friends, family, work colleagues or staff to fundraise for us. Whether you are planning to fundraise on your own or with friends, at school or work, whatever you do, do it for us. Remember, spread the word, publicising can only boost your fundraising. By promoting it through local papers, FB, websites and notice boards, etc. you’re also inspiring others to fundraise and increase awareness of the work of the Foundation.

Help us give hope and strength to some special ‘bravehearts’.
