As in previous years here at Appleton Woods we decided we’d rather donate £250 to charity than send out Christmas cards. We had several nominations and it was very difficult to choose between so many very worthy causes! However, we have decided this year to donate the money to ‘Little Hearts Matter’ as nominated by Dr Martin Smith from University College London.
Little Hearts Matter is a national UK charity offering help to anyone affected by the diagnosis of single ventricle heart condition. From initial antenatal diagnosis, through treatments and into life at home, the charity works with children, young adults and families to reduce the isolation, fear and lack of understanding created when a child is diagnosed as having half a working heart.
Thank you for all your nominations and Happy New Year from everyone at Appleton Woods!
