Here is a selection of facts and figures about the support we have been able to offer our heart families in last year due to the efforts of our fabulous fundraisers.
CHD is the most common birth defect in children born in NI with on average 200 babies per year born with one or more heart conditions.
We create over £2,450,000 of social value from our work.
1/3 of children born with CHD will face open heart surgery throughout their lives.
For every £1 invested in the charity, we create a social value of approximately £8!
