Sunday 8th May saw 21 wonderful heart mummy’s getting a day off as we hosted our Yummy Mummy Pamper Day. They got to enjoy nail manicures, massage therapy, hints and tips from a Colour and Style Image Consultant and make a unique piece of beautiful jewellery to take home. This was all topped off with High Tea and spectacular views from the Penthouse Apartments in the Obel Building, Belfast.
A wonderful day of relaxation was had and we look forward to next year’s event already.
Dr Casey (Lead Clinician at Clark Clinic) has provided this information about waiting times for appointments and reviews as we have had lots concerns and queries from heart families about this issue.

The Ortus Group chooses Children’s Heartbeat Trust as Annual Charity Partner
The Ortus Group has announced it has partnered with Children’s Heartbeat Trust in 2016/17 to raise vital funds for the charity.
Ortus run a number of charity and community events throughout the year for different charities but this year has decided to focus on an annual cause within the community. The company is planning on organising a range of internal and external events to support the annual contribution as well as partaking in Children’s Heartbeat Trust campaigns.
In 2015, Ortus’ 8th Annual Charity Golf Day took place for Children’s Heartbeat Trust raising £7,000 for the charity. The funds were used to:
Provide 83 confidential family counselling sessions which are available to all heart families through Carecall.
Furnish two brand new respite caravans in Newcastle and Ballycastle so that heart families can get a break from the stresses of daily living with heart disease and the hospital environment. Fifty-seven families will enjoy staying in them this year.
Lynn Cowan, Fundraiser for Children’s Heartbeat Trust commented:
“The support from Ortus has been hugely beneficial to date and we are delighted to have been named as the first annual charity partner with the company.
The funds allowed us to continue providing our support services to the many children and young people in Northern Ireland living with heart disease. As well as raising money, Ortus have also helped us to raise awareness of heart disease in children and our work in local communities across Northern Ireland. We look forward to working with them and developing our services with their support.”
Following this event, and seeing the impact the funds have had on so many Northern Irish Families Ortus CEO, Seamus O’Prey, is pleased to partner with the charity:
“As a social enterprise, Ortus are focussed on regeneration of the local area, providing mentoring and training to businesses at any stage of their cycle and supporting those within our community. Therefore, raising funds for other charities and community groups and giving back is central to our social ethos.
After the impact our support in 2015 had upon Children’s Heartbeat Trust we are delighted to name them as our first Annual Charity, supporting their work through a number of different events throughout the year.”
