Zipper Zone Launch

We’re very excited that our new youth site for our young members – Zipper Zone – has finally gone live! We hope that you enjoy browsing through the site and we are really eager to hear from you, our young members, with news stories that we can include here!

We had a few ideas of some types of articles that we love for our young members to write for us, but if you have any other ideas (or would like to do one of these for us!) please get in touch with us.

Our ideas:

  • Diet: articles including photos of specific meals and sharing tips on what you eat to keep healthy but also to give yourself enough energy for the day.
  • Fun: articles about what you have got up to over the weekend.
  • Active: what ways do you stay fit and healthy? Share your ways of how you keep active!
  • Tutorials: do you have a talent or a party trick? Why not show us how you do it?
  • Coping with bullies: articles on how you have coped with bullies.
  • Being more confident: articles on being more confident as you go through life with half a heart.

Talk to us!

Our Cochantelmmunications Officer Chantel would love to hear from you if you’d like to share your story and write an article for our news section!

    Every child with a single ventricle heart condition should have a Health Care Plan in place in school. It is a statutory requirement. The plan sets out all the ways to monitor and respond to your individual children’s needs. Health Care Plan, HCP’s, can be put in place from the age of 0 to 24 years old. Each Local education authority will have their own plan but they will all cover the same information. For more information on what to include in the plan follow the link www.lhm.org.uk/information/lifestyle-information/education/health-care-plans-for-children-and-you... ... See MoreSee Less

    Stuck for a Mothering Sunday present? Lucy Houle is giving 10 per cent of all sales of this gorgeous Cobblestone with Hot Pink Handles Medium Tote Bag to Little Hearts Matter! bit.ly/2Tpyo76
    Lucy has made this commitment due to her close friendship with Fiona Pollard and Lucia. Lucy explained,

    "I think Fiona and Lucia Pollard are a rather special Mummy and Daughter team.
    Lucia was born with a rare defect that means she has half a heart and the condition is life limiting and can't be cured. At only 5 years old she's already had several open heart surgery procedures to improve her health.
    I often see them in the playground and at ballet where Lucia is every bit the typical little girl but her smiles hide the very real day-to-day struggles that the family face. Thankfully, they get brilliant support from Little Hearts Matter; the only UK charity that supports this rare condition.
    And we want to support them too, so 10% of each sale of our new bags will go to Little Hearts Matter to help them continue to support children like Lucia."
