Support Leeds Children's Hospital

Latest at Leeds Children's Hospital Appeal:

Here's a lovely little video made by our supporters John & Hannah Flinn about their twin daughter's Vivienne and Harriet's journey here at Leeds Children's Hospital.

They told us: "On Tuesday, 18th March, Viv was admitted to hospital. The next day, we took Hattie in with the same symptoms. By that time Viv required ventilation and the following day she survived two cardiac arrests.

"During this recent spell at the LGI, we experienced phenomenal levels of care from nurses, doctors and consultants, whilst finding that the units they work on are under-equipped. Simple items that had a critical impact on the lives of our daughters are in too short supply.

"We started fundraising to help provide the untiring staff with the equipment they need to be most effective at saving lives. We are so grateful for the many offers of help we have received. By donating just a few pounds, you will join us in saying 'thank you' to those who have worked to save our daughters' lives. You will help Hattie and Viv leave hospital having made a vital difference to other babies like them in the future. THANK YOU!"

John, Hannah and friends hiked the three peaks last May as well as organised other fundraising activities and managed to raise a massive £2,643.70. This will be split equally between the Neonatal Ward at St James and the Paediatric ICU at LGI. If you would like to help babies and children like Vivienne and Harriet, please contact us.
