CHUF and Sick Childrens Trust

As you will see from our ‘Who’s Ted’ page, this business was born from a desire to raise funds and awareness for 2 amazing and life changing charities operating to support children (and their families) suffering with heart conditions who receive care in The Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.

CHUF (Childrens Heart Unit Fund)

CHUF raises vital funds for large and small pieces of equipment, facilities, aftercare, salaries and research. CHUF’s charitable activities however, go far beyond that of providing medical equipment and personnel. The Charity provides holistic care to the children by providing services and facilities that allow Heart Heroes to develop their skills and mature as any healthy child normally would.

To date – CHUF has donated TEN MILLION POUNDS to support the Childrens Heart Unit at the Freeman Hospital, as well as now supporting 6 other district general hospitals in the Northern Region.

The Sick Childrens Trust

When a child suddenly becomes ill, there’s no time to plan. The Sick Children’s Trust is the charity that gives families one less thing to worry about by giving them a place to stay, and someone to talk to, free of charge just minutes from their child’s bedside. They operate 10 ‘homes from home’ to support families from the UK each year with warm and comfortable accommodation, and a friendly ear to listen.
