#RockRedFriday 2020

February is World Heart Month and to celebrate each year we run our ROCK RED FRIDAY campaign.

#Rock Red Friday is back in 2020 – all with the aim of raising vital awareness of congenital heart disease (CHD), Northern Ireland’s most common birth defect and much-needed funds to support our work.

The campaign encourages people to wear something red and donate to our work with local heart children. This could be through a simple collection in your office or full blown fundraising event – it doesn’t matter as long as you ROCK RED! All funds raised will us enable to provide practical and emotional support to local children and young people with congenital heart disease.

Niall Parfitt age 4 is just one of the hundreds of children supported by the charity and he was delighted to launch last year’s campaign with his sister Éabha age 7.

Niall was born in 2014, with Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return (TAPVR). Following a month in the Royal Victoria Hospital, Niall was flown by air ambulance to undergo open heart surgery in Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

We would love if you could join us and ROCK RED this FEB!
