The Children's Heart Unit at the Freeman Hospital is one of the only two centres in the UK offering podiatrist heart transplant and bridge to transplant, with transplant numbers increasing to the point where the unit now provides almost half of the UK's pediatric transplants.
They also have the expertise and support systems through their transplant service to allow them to undertake high-risk surgery. The Children’s Heart Unit is also the only service providing before birth care with seamless transition to adulthood.
Providing world class care, the unit is structured to deliver the best possible results for critically ill babies, children and young people. On Wednesday 15th August 2012 Seb4CHUF arranged a Charity Ball at Close House Hotel to raise funds for the unit. Seb4Chuf was created by Nadine and Ivan Hollingsworth who’s son Sebastian had to undergo major heart surgery at the unit. So far they have raised nearly £250,000 for the unit!!
Simply Bows and Chair Covers chose CHUF as our nominated charity this year and were thrilled to dress the marquee for this wonderful event. Flowers and table centres were designed by Wedding Flowers for You. The theme was Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and the overall effect of the marquee looked amazing (if we say so ourselves!) and they even had their own Oompa Loompa's! Here are some photo's...
