Don’t be surprised if you’re seeing red today – many will be as they show their support for Wear Red Day and congenital heart disease.
Whether it’s red socks for a splash of awareness or an all-out crimson costume, wear red for the day and support the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF) on Friday, 7th February and help children and adults.
Your fundraising will help fund ground-breaking new equipment, resources, training and research as well as support for children and their families whenever they need it.
It’s so easy to take part, all you need to do is wear red!
It’s a great opportunity to bring pupils, teachers and school staff together for a brilliant cause and team bonding is guaranteed with #WearRedDay at work, it doesn’t need to take up much time but can bring amazing returns.
And it needn’t stop at wearing red clothing, why not host a Bake Off! Open a stand and sell delicious treats, red coloured of course! Go on a sponsored walk and get naturally red in the cheeks, dress your pets in red and share the fun with your furry friends or simply guess how many red sweets are in the jar.
CHSF was founded in 1988 and since then, has awarded around £7million in grants to the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit, its patients and their families, as well as funding important research proposals.
And it’s all thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the public and corporate supporters, and by the amazing efforts of fundraisers.
