Heart Link (East Midlands Children's Heart Care Association) Registered Charity No. 513946 was formed in 1981, as a support group for parents and families who had a child suffering from a heart defect.


Over the years we have also become increasingly committed to improving facilities for our young patients, their families and providing much needed valuable medical equipment.


Our aim has always been to do our best to provide the best.


All our Officials, Committee Members and helpers give their time freely, without payment or taking any expenses, and our administration costs are minimal. 


Since 1981 we have collected, with the marvelous support and generosity of the general public, well over £4 ­­­million pounds.  This has been used to fund projects large and small. 




This fundraising and expenditure shows the commitment of Heart Link and its supporters to do all they can for their members and the Cardiac Surgery Unit at Glenfield Hospital but we would not be able to do all this without the help and support of our wonderful fundraisers.




We are indebted to all, too many to mention, who have, over the years (and we hope for years to come,) run marathons; scaled mountains; held coffee days; organized discos and balls; been sponsored to do almost anything; sold raffle tickets etc etc, all with the purpose of raising money.


It is hard work but every penny raised is used, in some way, to benefit the children and their families.
