If running, trekking, cycling and swimming are too tame for you then why not consider a more extreme challenge? Take on the act of ultimate bravery for children with half a working heart and feel the rush of the wind in your hair as you fly through the clouds at up to 120mph.

For many people, skydiving is a once in a lifetime, bucket list experience. We’ve teamed up with Skyline Events so that you can experience the thrill of a skydive whilst raising money for Little Hearts Matter. With Skyline centres all over the UK you can skydive at an airfield near you on the date of your choice. All jumps take place with BPA (British Parachute Association) instructors.

Skydives have a minimum sponsorship target of £395 at most airfields (£450 in Scotland and Northern Ireland) – this covers the cost of your jump as well as a donation to LHM, and anything you raise above the target will come straight to us as well. This means you get to skydive for free! Alternatively, you can choose the self-funding option which means you cover the cost of the skydive yourself and then all your sponsorship comes directly to LHM. There is no minimum sponsorship target for self-funding skydivers.

If you’re ready to take the plunge for children with half a working heart, you can go ahead and book on Skyline’s website here!

To find out more about skydiving, visit Skyline’s website or fill in your details below and we will send you an information pack in the post. Your information pack will include more information on the types of skydive available as well as the locations of airfields around the country and how to book.

    The Youth Zone is our dedicated support network for young adults aged 11 to 17 living with a single ventricle heart condition. During lock-down, we have been working hard to keep our youth members supported and connected with each other.

    We just wanted to shine some light on this awesome bunch, as they have come so far and achieved so much during the Covid Crisis. One of our highlights being this video, a 26 minute exercise challenge via Zoom, all in support of LHM for the 2.6 challenge. They smashed the routine and raised over £500 for us! Thank you.

    The group keeps in touch through regular Netflix parties and lots of healthy discussion on the private message forums, as well as having access to 1-1 support provided by LHM whenever they need it.

    None of this would be possible without our youth leader Lexie and our awesome youth mentors, please can we all thank them for the incredible work they have been doing for these brave young people throughout this crisis.

    Open Heart Surgery during Lock-down | LHM parent member Rose shares some uplifting words for us.

    "We were very apprehensive about this surgery as the last one he had was a very long recovery. He literally has made so many people proud, Naayt had his open heart surgery on the 11th June and was discharged 11 days later... home! yes, home!"

    "I couldn't believe it either. You will be so amazed at how pink they are after this surgery and its so lovely to see. The only thing that stops them is the drains which he had 1 left in literally 3 days before discharge and his inr being in range which happened on the day he was allowed home."

    "These kids are so amazing and I am so amazed at how fast they can recover and get through these operations."
