Special memories with Children's Heart Surgery Fund: Part Two

Special memories with Children\'s Heart Surgery Fund: Part Two

Selection of images from home visits, tours of Thorp Arch and matchday activity with CHSF.

We have been taking a look down memory lane at our close working relationship with Children's Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF) that has helped to raise awareness around the fantastic organisation and enabled special memories to be made for young patients and their families.

This local charity work incredibly hard to help save the lives of youngsters in our local community by providing life-saving medical equipment for the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit, parent accommodation for families of young patients and supply vital ward resources.

The organisation are wholly funded by donations from the public and it is through donations they have been able to support and help care for over 22,500 babies, children and adults living with congenital heart disease, every year.

Yesterday, we looked back on all of the visits arranged at Leeds Children's Hospital with our first-team players, but during the last two seasons there have also been home visits, exclusive tours arranged at Thorp Arch and lots of activity on matchdays for the families supported by CHSF, with youngsters even getting the chance to live out their dream of being a mascot and walking out onto the Elland Road pitch with one of their heroes.

There are a selection of images below as we look back at those special memories.

Like many charities, CHSF need extra support during this coronavirus pandemic to continue working and saving the lives of babies and children fighting congenital heart disease. The work they do also supports other children who require care in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at Leeds Children's Hospital, so if you are able to make a small donation to show your support, please click here.
