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.

    A few weeks ago, we shared a news article about John and Kate Carlton who have been fundraising for Little Hearts Matter. This family’s amazing support doesn’t stop there, as their 9 year old daughter May also arranged for her school to take part in a non-uniform day for Little Hearts Matter. She put together a PowerPoint presentation and spoke to her Headteacher who agreed to hold a fundraising day for LHM.

    Just look at how many donations were received on the day – well done May, you’re a star! ❤️ To get involved and register your fundraising, click here: www.lhm.org.uk/get-involved/fundraising/register-your-fundraising/

    Youth Support

    There are young people living with half a heart across the country, many aged between 11 and 18. It is massively important for all of these brave young people to have access to the care, guidance and support they need – allowing them to live life to its full potential that their heart will allow.

    Lexie runs our Youth Services, supporting our youth members in a variety of ways, throughout their half a heart journey. These young members are invited to Activity Weekends and Education Days where they will explore their heart condition and seek solutions to the challenges that having half a heart brings. They will also have an opportunity to meet with other young members, online and in person, making friendships and helping them feel less alone.

    Did you know our youth members also consist of siblings? We know it can be a tough road for them too, so they also have a chance to chat with each other for support from people their age that truly understand. You can find out more about our Youth Services by clicking here www.lhm.org.uk/youth-zone/
