Story

Please help parents #StayAnotherDay and contribute to our £10,000 Christmas appeal. Give what you can to enable future mums, dads and siblings to have a comfortable retreat when they need it most - knowing they can be at their child’s bedside in a heartbeat.

Mums and dads tell us how nearby accommodation is the most important support they receive while their child is being treated at the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit.

If you have positive experiences of parent accommodation in Leeds, please tell everyone about them here when you make your contribution, to inspire others to donate.

From the early days of ‘The Bungalow’ at Killingbeck Hospital, to our current rooms at Brotherton Wing and annual funding of Eckersley House, we have only been able to offer parent accommodation because of your donations.

And this Christmas, we are asking for your help.

To offer ‘room at the inn’ for future mums, dads, carers and siblings, please give what you can to our #StayAnotherDay appeal. We know giving family members an inviting space to recharge while a poorly baby or child is being treated in Leeds also enables the patient’s recovery.

We need to raise at least £10k every year so families can stay near their children and we have calculated that around 10,000 families have stayed in parent accommodation since CHSF started in 1988.

£10,000 is a necessity to enable CHSF to offer this service in the future, but is also symbolic of all those who have benefited to date.

Thank you for your support this Christmas, and beyond.
