It’s Little Hearts Matter’s 25th anniversary in 2019 and we’re asking our supporters to help us celebrate this momentous occasion by challenging themselves to help us make it the special year we hope it will be.

We want as many people as possible to join in the fundraising effort, so we can keep going and growing for another 25 years. If you think how far we’ve come as a charity over the last quarter of a century, imagine what we can do in the next 25?!

So, you may be asking “what can I do?”

We have 25 ideas below for you to take on. Do as many as you want, but please join in and help us make 2019 a year to remember!

    1. Host a special Summer Celebration (watch this space for more information!)
    2. Cycle from London to Brighton joining our 25 for 25 team of bike enthusiasts

    Children with half a working heart catch colds and coughs just like other children of the same age but of course when you already have a reduced energy level and less oxygen travelling around your body it can knock the children for six. Parents may notice that their child is a bit more cyanosed, a bit bluer, and that they may be a bit more breathless than normal. Keep the children well wrapped up and snug and warm, give them Calpol if their temperature is high, keep the fluids going, small amounts of nourishing food every couple of hours and lots of opportunity to sleep will all help a child recover. HOWEVER, if they have a high temperature for a couple of days or their breathlessness or colour becomes worse take them to the GP for a check-up. If the infection is Viral there will be no point in antibiotics but if the GP thinks antibiotics will help they will be prescribed. If you are worried at all always get your child checked by a doctor. ... See MoreSee Less
