The Little Hearts Matter memorial was created as a special place to remember the many children who have sadly died because of their complex heart condition.

Set within the Children’s Wood at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, the tree and bench memorials offer families a place to quietly reflect in beautiful calm surroundings. For details of the arboretum’s opening times, visit their website thenma.org.uk

Every year, on the first Sunday in May, Little Hearts Matter holds a memorial event where families can meet together to remember their children and hang hearts on the tree in their memory. If you would like to join with other families, just ring us for more details on 0121 455 8982.

    Colin, Grandparent to Thomas who is 15 and was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, talks about when he learnt that his unborn grandson had only half a heart.

    “Imagine the anguish of excited grandparents who are eagerly awaiting the results of their daughter's 20 week scan only to find that their unborn grandson has a major heart condition.”

    "Being referred to Little Hearts Matter seemed an empty consolation, yet this wonderful charity has provided support, encouragement and, probably most important, hope both before birth and in the 15 years subsequently."

    Alongside his wife Christine, Colin has raised over £8,600 for Little Hearts Matter this year alone, providing us with vital resources that we need to support our families and make them feel less frightened and isolated throughout their half-a-heart journey. Thank you so much for everything you have both done for us.

    We hope you can take some inspiration from Colin's passion and generosity this Christmas, follow in his footsteps and purchase a patch on our Visufund blanket.

    A massive thank you to the amazing Rowan who was the narrator in our Christmas video!

    Rowan is a big brother to Bobby who has half a heart and he kindly stepped in to help us tell the story of so many half a heart families. We think he did a fantastic job!

    If you haven't done so, please go to visufund.co.uk/lhm-wrap-a-blanket to buy a patch and wrap a blanket of support around more families like Rowan's.

    Thank you ❤
