    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."
