SCHF Charity Ball
Join us for a spectacular evening of fun and fundraising for the South Cleveland Heart Fund at our black-tie ball in Middlesbrough, 24th February 2018
SOUTH CLEVELAND HEART FUND
Registered Charity 1051565
Dedicated to helping Heart Patients through supporting our excellent regional cardiothoracic unit at the The JAMES COOK UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL in Middlesbrough.
Thanks to the amazing generosity of so many giving their time and money we recently completed the £1 Million Cardiac MRI Appeal.
Now the big Appeal is over, we continue to raise funds exclusively for the Cardiothoracic Centre Unit to pay for things such as equipment (VAT exempt), pump-priming of new advanced procedures by the Consultants so that the Commissioners will purchase them, training, and research - none of which could be provided by the current NHS.
Funding from the SCHF is focussed on improving Heart Patient Care, and, in the process, help to maintain our World Class Unit`s National and International reputation, continuing to attract top people to work in Teesside`s Regional Cardiothoracic Centre.
None of the SCHF Committee raising these funds are salaried, and as we are volunteers, every penny donated goes to where it was meant to.
We do make a difference to OUR heart patients
and their families

‘We’ve done it!’ South Cleveland Heart Fund reaches £1m target
The South Cleveland Heart Fund has reached its £1m target for the upgrade of a MRI scanner, thanks to generous donations from the public.
The £1m milestone was reached within 18 months, after a number of kind-hearted people rallied together to raise vital funds for the cause - with events ranging from race nights to a Bollywood extravaganza!
The scanner upgrade will enable cardiac consultants to carry out state of the art scanning and a full Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR) Imaging service, supporting the James Cook University Hospital’s existing status as a regional cardiothoracic centre at the leading edge of heart care advances.
