Fundraising activities and events for LHM happen all over the country. From bucket collections to school assemblies, we always need people to lend a hand and a couple of hours to help us raise essential funds and awareness.

We might be holding a bucket collection and need some extra people to shake tins. Some of our fantastic runners could be crossing the finish line in your town and would love to see you on the sidelines cheering them on, or there might be a local school doing an assembly who want to hear from a parent about life with half a working heart.

If you’re interested in helping out, fill in the form below and we’ll contact you when an opportunity comes up in your area. There’s no obligation to attend and no minimum amount of hours you have to contribute – just join us whenever you can!

    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
