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.

    Most children born with a single ventricle heart undergo a series of open heart surgeries from a very early age. In our eyes, they are all champions in their own special way.

    The medical experiences of these families is now being researched by a team of NHS specialists, with an aim to shape the future of patient experience for children affected by congenital heart disease.

    We have collaborated with the NHS to take part in this special and incredibly important research project. It is called Champion and is open to members of Little Hearts Matter – parents, adults and teenagers.

    We urge you to join the study, it is so important to our community and will help to drive real positive changes. All you have to do is answer a few questions. Please complete an application form and you will be contacted by LHM with more info.

    Here is the application form 👉 bit.ly/35KLG7n

    If you didn't snap it 📸 it didn't snow 😉

    Great to see so many of our young members getting out and enjoying some fun in the snow! ☃️

    Keeping hands, feet and noses warm when you only have half a heart can be a challenge, so please remember we have our winter warmers information, linked below 👇
