As it fell in Heart Awareness Month, we had a Heart stall at our Spring Disco selling small items to raise both money and awareness for 'Healing Little Hearts'.
We were very happy to have raised £212, which will go towards helping children abroad who do not have the benefit of the NHS and who otherwise would not be able to have much needed cardiac operations.
We were very happy to welcome Dr Ram into school today to accept the cheque on the charitys' behalf. Dr Ram is a cardiac surgeon at Alder Hey Hospital. He talked to Class 1 and Class 2 about his work and how he has helped our friend A by carrying out her lifesaving surgery. The children asked some great questions! Dr Ram told us that he was travelling abroad tomorrow with a team of other doctors and nurses to spend the week carrying out surgeries for poorly children with no access to the health care we are so lucky to have. In October, A’s mum, Vicki, will be travelling with Dr Ram to support families of cardiac children abroad and we look forward to hearing updates on the work of Healing Little Hearts in the future
