Happy 1st December to all of our Heart children, families and supporters
A huge thank you to the Heart Heroes Team for their amazing donations, Ben Crease https://countrybutchers.co.ukand Portraitsbyzoeh for their fantastic prizes!!
World Children’s Day is marked each year on November 20 to celebrate the date when world leaders made a promise to all children, giving them their own set of rights.
Rights exist to make sure everyone is treated fairly and has the basic support they need to survive.
Children already had the same human rights as everyone else, but in November 1989 the United Nations (UN) General Assembly adopted a new proposal, designed to improve child welfare and encourage all countries to work together to build a better world for children.
This special set of rights is made up of 54 articles and is called the Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
These include, the right to:
Life, survival and development
Medical care and nutritious food
Get information that is beneficial – from newspapers, social media, the radio or TV etc.
Receive help from their government
Rest and play
Not have to do work that is dangerous
Be raised by, or have a relationship with, their parents if it is safe to do so
Think for themselves
Protection from violence, abuse or neglect
Express their opinions, be listened to and taken seriously
Ella will be running our Wales Heart Heroes Hub.
I decided to get involved with Heart Heroes, in particular their Welsh Hub as I myself have congenital heart disease. Recently I was fortunate to have a baby boy, who was born without CHD, it was a 1 in 10 chance of him being born with CHD. I realised how scary that must be for parents, having their child diagnosed with such an unpredictable illness that could never be cured. I wanted to give something back and support a good friend with her charity, Heart Heroes. On speaking to Kelly, we quickly realised the lack of provision within Wales, I live in Bridgend so have offered to help run the Wales Hub, where I run coffee mornings and will be looking to organise fundraising events.
Take to the skies in true Christmas Style with the adventure of a lifetime.
Dress as Father Christmas, Mrs Claus, a Snowman, a Reindeer, a Fairy, or and Elf. Look fantastically festive and make memories to last a lifetime while getting your heart racing and raising much needed funds for Heart Heroes.
Winter Wingwalks are very special a wonderful way to end 2020 on a high. You will be strapped to the Wing of our Vintage Boeing Stearman Bi-Plane for an exhilirating 10 minute flight tailored to each individual. Before taking to the skies you will have a conversation with our pilot who can offer anything from a gentle walk in the park style experience taking in the local sights to an exilaerating adrenaline filled flight with steep turns, exciting dives and other heart pounding manouveres.
