Heart Heroes Awareness Song Update

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in our Virtual Christmas Fair yesterday. The event page is still live so you can still go back and see what is on offer.https://fb.me/e/1QPPQ9G8c The raffle was drawn yesterday, congratulations to all the winners!! £780 was raised 🤩

Today we start off with some amazing news our awareness song ‘I’AM THE SONG’ now has a release date…December 7th which will be downloadable on most platforms Spotify, iTunes, Amazon etc. Created by the amazing Richard Lane and sung by RAENE who’s voice is simply beautiful. To whom we cannot thank enough!!

The song was very much written with our heart families in mind but we truly feel this will resonate with many people. Our plan was and is to sing the song and have it filmed with our heart families and a choir in the amazing Gloucester Cathedral as soon as we can.

Gloucester City Council Covid Grant

As a Gloucester based charity we are very proud of our community and how it’s joined together during these times.

Recently https://www.gloucester.gov.uk has awarded us a grant to enable us to continue with our physical heart family coffee mornings by making premises and community spaces Covid compliant – signage etc. Providing Training for employee’s and volunteers to deliver compliance messages.

This means our community fundraising funds can continue to support our heart children and families through out Gloucestershire and the South West in the form of virtual get togethers, delivery of goody boxes and loaning laptops to enable all families to take part.

Announcement…

We are pleased to announce that Zoe Trotman, ward sister on Dolphin ward at The Bristol children’s hospital will become one of Heart Heroes Patrons. We already have very strong links at The Bristol Children’s hospital but this will mean we as a charity will have input from a medical professional.  

Zoe said ‘ ‘I would really like to get involved as you send out such a positive supportive vibe and are having such a fantastic impact on the cardiac families you have contact with’.
