    LHM Lock-down Look-back...

    One of our main tasks during the Covid crisis has been creating new activities and resources for our younger members, particularly those aged under 11 living with a single ventricle heart.

    In March we launched our new 'children's activities' section of the website, providing fun and creative ideas to help keep the younger ones entertained, it's still available here: bit.ly/2O26wpl

    We have also worked on digital events, bringing the younger members together through a safe and fun online environment. This included a children's party hosted by Emilia, sister to LHM's youth leader Lexie and owner of Bespoke Kidz Partiez.

    Thanks to Emilia and her helper 😉 the party went down a treat and the children had so much fun. We received some wonderful feedback including this message from LHM parent member Lauren "Thank you for Niamh's certificate, she was so excited to receive it this morning 😊 she had such a wonderful time at the party last weekend, thank you for organising such a fab event 😃 we hope you're all keeping safe and well ❤️ xxx"

    This is why we do it. It's been a challenging few months for our team, but the journey continues and LHM is doing everything we can to keep our members connected and supported.

    There is more and more evidence that exercise, when introduced wisely can really help the Fontan heart. So, as lockdown measures begin to ease, you may want to start thinking about getting some much needed fresh air.

    Of course, every family is different and we would only encourage you to get outside if you feel it is safe to do so. Finding a quiet spot where you don't have to worry about people coming too close is key.
