Dress half up or half down for children with only half a heart!

You’ve heard of Dress Down Day – now it’s time for Half Dress Down Day! This great fundraiser is all about having fun and raising much-needed funds and awareness for children with half a heart.

All you have to do is wear ‘half’ a fun costume – wear a suit jacket with your pyjama trousers, be half a superhero and half a ballerina, put half of your hair up and leave half of it down, or wear just half a face of make up. There are so many ways you can get involved. Let your imagination run wild and make a real difference for the families we support.

How to get involved:

  • Fill in the form below to request your Half Dress Down Day Pack
  • Choose a date for a Half Dress Down Day in your school, college or workplace and let everyone know about it
  • Plan your incredible outfit
  • Ask everyone who takes part on the day to donate £1
  • Have a great day! Remember to take lots of pictures to show off your fantastic outfits.

Once everyone has donated, remember to send the funds in to us – if you have any questions about how to do this, have a look at our donations page.

    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."
