Yorkshire Cricket is set to continue its long-standing relationship with the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF) as it looks to raise vital funds for the charity this Christmas.
For the past four years, Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s players and staff have raised funds for presents that have then been delivered to the children on the wards at Leeds Congenital Heart Unit by members of the playing staff. Unfortunately, the nature of the restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus make this impossible this Christmas. However, the charity has a greater need for support than ever before, with the vast majority of its fundraising initiative cancelled this year. As such, Yorkshire Cricket has launched a Just Giving page for its players, staff and supporters to donate to. All of the funds raised will go directly to CHSF to assist them in the lifesaving work they are doing.
Any donation that you are able to make will make a huge difference and be greatly appreciated.
More on Children’s Heart Surgery Fund’s lifesaving work
Children’s Heart Surgery Fund support children from Yorkshire who are born with a heart condition and their families. They do this by supporting the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit, based at the Leeds General Infirmary.
CHSF fund accommodation for families to keep parents as close to their children as possible when their child is having heart surgery. They fund life-saving equipment as well as innovative equipment to help take the heart unit to the next level. They provide financial grants for families who need this help whilst their child is in hospital. Every child who has open heart surgery is given a Katie Bear teddy and a medal.
The charity is 100% funded by supporters like you.
