LHM family raises thousands for charity in memory of their son
An LHM family has raised over £5000 for Little Hearts Matter during a charity fundraiser, in memory of their son, Theo. Jessica and Jordan lost their son Theo in March, to a rare congenital heart condition called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.
Through this heart-breaking experience, Jess and Jordan made the decision to create a community fundraising event in Theo’s name, to honour their son and provide support for future HLHS families.

“The loss of a child is a void that can never be filled. The only thing you can do is try and help others that might be in a similar situation. We hope that what we raise can will go a little way to helping other families and parents.” Jess said.
Theo’s Skate Jam was inspired through Jordan’s passion for inline skating. With the help of family, friends, and local business, Jordan and Jess transformed Thame Skate Park into a community fun day with skating, games, raffles, food and music.
On the day, the event was buzzing, with a fantastic turnout and despite a very wet July, the clouds parted ways for the sun to shine down on the people of Thame. Collectively over £4,300 was raised to go towards Little Hearts Matter’s support services.
Words cannot express how thankful we are to Jess and Jordan for creating Theo’s Skate Jam. Our bereaved members are very much part of the LHM family. It was an honour to have our name linked to Theo’s special day. Thank you so much.
