Here at Cairn Technology, we are delighted to have raised £2,300 for the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF) since starting to donate in November 2021.
We are very proud to be supporting this amazing charity, as it provides life-saving medical equipment for the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit (LCHU), as well as parent accommodation for families, and vital ward resources.
In addition, the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund also funds staff training, scientific research, and new clinical roles.
Major requests for funding are reviewed by the board of trustees, which has awarded over £10 million in grants to the LCHU and the region’s supporting hospitals, helping countless congenital heart disease patients and their families.
Why and how we support CHSF
We have a strong personal connection with the charity, as one of our staff members has a daughter who was treated at the Heart Unit.
We will be funding vital equipment for the charity, as well as making contributions throughout the year to Bella’s INR home testing kit.
These kits reduce stress and allow a patient to test their blood levels themselves at home without missing school for hospital appointments.
Why help this children’s charity?
CHSF are wholly funded by donations from the public and business. So far, those donations have enabled the charity to help over 17,000 babies, children and adults living with congenital heart disease (CHD) each year.
So, if you are looking to support a children’s charity, this one should definitely be at the top of your list. And there are so many ways that you can get involved!
