Children’s Heart Surgery Fund Leeds (CHSF) is an award-winning charity, supporting the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit at the Leeds General Infirmary. Our commitment to supporting a local charity at each of our depots saw the Leeds team being asked to nominate a charity, and given the immense support Children’s Heart Surgery Fund give to children with heart problems, we chose them as our nominated charity.
We have branded a B&M truck which goes around Leeds City Centre with CHSF’s messaging, so they can promote the good work they do to the people of Leeds on our giant ‘moving billboards’
We hosted a coffee and cake fundraising morning on 1st August, and one of the team took part in a mammoth task of a skydive in September, to further fundraise for the charity.
In February we took part in the charity’s annual wear red day and sponsored their networking event in October which sees local Leeds Businesses come together and share ideas and best-practice, as well as the common interest being to learn more about the work the CHSF do.
This autumn we sponsored the biggest event in CHSF’s calendar, their 30th anniversary ball. The event was a glittering black tie affair including a three-course meal, entertainment, a live and silent auction, and a raffle – all with the aim of raising £30,000 in honour of the number of years the charity has been running. Smashing this target the event raised over £44,000! #ProudSponsors.
