Scores of Incommunities’ workers turned up for work today in red to raise money for the vital work of the Leeds Heart Surgery Fund.
A bucket collection raised £164 for the Fund’s Wear Red Day (2nd February)
This latest fundraising follows hot on the heels of a £1000 raffle collection by Incommunities staff at the end of 2017.
The Leeds Heart Surgery Fund was among a group of charities chosen in a vote among employees before Christmas to find their favourite causes for the group to support.
The money raised will go towards helping fund new equipment, resources, training and research to help both children and young adults with Congenital Heart Disease. It will also help provide support for their families.
Adrienne Reid, Incommunities’ Assistant Chief Executive, Neighbourhoods, said: "Staff have really got behind this latest fundraising for the Leeds Heart Surgery Fund.
"We are very proud to support the unit’s life changing work caring for both children and their families."
Sharon Coyle, Chief Executive of the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, said: "We are delighted to receive this generous donation from Incommunities."
