Latest at Leeds Children's Hospital Appeal:
On 3rd June 2015 we were delighted to meet with CCS Leeds to present a state of the art piece of equipment they very kindly donated to the Leeds Children’s Hospital. They have generously purchased a Cell-Salvage machine; a machine which captures lost blood, cleans it and then replaces it.
This means there are less delays before crucial operations as compatibility tests do not need to be carried out and rare blood types can be easily transfused. Additionally, if patients do not want to take blood for religious reasons this is a great alternative for them.
The machine will not only save lives, but it will speed up medical processes and reduce the reliance on blood banks. So a great big thank you to CCS Leeds!
Thumbs Up For The Leeds Half Marathon!
A huge well done to everyone who participated in the Leeds Half Marathon on Sunday, 10th May. You were all fantastic and we really hope you enjoyed it! A big thank you to all who have helped runners to raise funds for the Children's Hospital through sponsorship!
And of course, thank you to all our volunteers who supported the Leeds Half Marathon and helped marshal the route; you did an amazing job.
