About Us

our real heroes

Who we are

Heart Heroes supports families of children living with congenital heart disease and heart problems. Our goal is for children and their siblings to be included in all our events, along with parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles and any other close family.

What we do

We are here to help all children within the South West living with Heart Conditions providing physical and emotional support.

Kelly – Founder

Kelly has three children and runs Heart Heroes full time voluntary. Kelly’s back ground is childcare and Kelly is super proud and passionate about Heart Heroes.

Zoe – Trustee

Zoe has two girls and runs her own hair and beauty salon. Zoe is a trustee of Heart Heroes. Zoe is part of the committee.

Rose – Trustee

Rose has four children and her youngest Naayt has a congenital heart defect. Rose works part time but volunteers at Heart Heroes.

Our Vision

We have already achieved a tremendous amount, supporting many families and their children by working closely with the Bristol Children’s Hospital Cardiac team and The CHD Network Southwest. Our future plans are to create Heart Heroes Hubs across the South West enabling us to support more families who have children living with heart conditions. We would also like to be in a position to employ staff who can also help achieve everything Heart Heroes is about.

How we are funded

We rely on the generosity of our supporters to fund our work. Most of our income comes from either individual who kindly raises money on our behalf, or from trusts/grant providers funding specific projects. We pride ourselves on the transparency, honesty and respectfulness of our fundraising. We are members of the fundraising regulator.

We are always grateful for any help we receive and a donation as little as £5 a month can go a long way. You can set this up here:

Every penny you donate helps a child and their family create lasting memories. The money you donate helps us fund group activities and events to create lasting memories and experiences for the child and their family. Every penny helps and we are grateful for all donations received whatever the size.
