Did you know that you can raise money for Little Hearts Matter by recycling your old inkjet cartridges, jewellery, stamps and even your car?

Stamps

Many companies will collect used stamps and donate to Little Hearts Matter for each kilogram that they receive.

You can send in:

  • Recently collected and unsorted stamps
  • GB or foreign stamps
  • Used or mint stamps
  • Stamps on or off paper
  • Everyday 1st & 2nd class and special edition/commemorative stamps
  • Please ensure that no more than 1cm of envelope is left around each stamp but that they are not trimmed so closely that the stamp edge is damaged

Contact us for details of where to send your stamps.

Cars

Do you own a vehicle that you want to scrap or get rid of? Then please donate it to us through Giveacar!

Giveacar raises money for UK charities by scrapping and selling old cars. They will collect your car from your home for free and then recycle it at an Authorised Treatment Facility or send it to auction.

Scrap donations raise an average of £35 while auction cars can raise much more.

To arrange collection of a car, visit Giveacar.co.uk or call 020 7736 4242, quoting Little Hearts Matter as your preferred charity.

    “Thank you very much for Chris' card. I cannot believe he is 18 and am so proud of the lovely young man he has become, overcoming the many challenges we have faced over the years, especially in the first 4 to 5 years. Thank you Little hearts matter for always being there.”

    Thank you to Chris and mum Philippa for sharing this fantastic news with us, we hope this brings some inspiration to the many families out there who are at the start of their half a heart journey.

    With YOUR help, we can continue to support the amazing young adults living with a single ventricle heart today, just like Chris here. All you need to do spare 30 seconds of your time every day to vote for LHM in Persimmon’s ‘Building Futures’ initiative.

    So pleased to see Amelia here, DILV, enjoying some cycling along with her sister Evie…

    “We’ve been doing a lot of cycling this week as both girls have grown in confidence. I’m amazed at Amelia’s stamina on the bike, doing much more exercise than she’s ever done. This is the girl that needs a buggy to get home from school (in normal life). She’s found a sport that she can comfortably do. She says she feels free when she’s cycling. That makes me happy and sad at the same time ❤ “Cycling makes me feel free, happy and like nothing is in my way””

    Riding a bike is great exercise for children, teenagers and adults with half a working heart. It helps get you from A to B but is also is supported exercise for the lower body and therefore provides good support for blood returning to the lungs. There are many incentives to help get you on a bike, at the moment.
