Heart Month banner

On Monday 28th February, the children of West Boldon Primary School wore red to raise money for local charity CHUF.

CHUF stands for Children’s Heart Unit Fund which is based at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle. The charity supports the children and families who receive treatment at the Freeman and the many other hospitals providing cardiac care for patients throughout the North-East of England. They raise vital funds for pieces of equipment, facilities, aftercare, salaries and research. Freeman Hospital is also one of only two hospitals in the UK performing heart transplants for babies and children.

To raise money, children took part in a cake sale, and a ‘guess the hearts in the jar’ game. Altogether we managed to raise a huge £302.95 – all heading straight to CHUF to make some miracles happen!

Don’t we all look amazing in red!
