Martha's dancing heart

£1,363 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 46 months
On Jan 10th 2015 our daughter, Martha was born with a very rapid heart beat (double what a baby would normally have) It's technical name is PJRT SVT ...and is basically an electrical short circuit in her heart.

She was cared for by the amazing staff at the Neonatal ward of University Hospital Wales, and the staff of the Children's Heart Unit for Wales, and after 4 weeks we were able to take her home.

She's doing fantastically well, and we know that without the love and support of her hospital angels, she could have been very poorly.

We want to say a huge thank you by fundraising in lots of different ways throughout the rest of 2015, and being able to donate at least £10,000 to the Children's Unit at UHW before Martha's first birthday.

We'd love your help and support - thank you so so much

Michelle, Rick, Will and Martha xxxxx

Thank you to everyone who has already donated, you are amazing souls :-)

I've also been talking to the hospital and we'll be shifting the fundraising page to a different page soon that allows us to get gift aid on donations too - will keep you all up to date with what's happening asap.

Wow! In just one short week we've raised £420 in donations from individuals and another £2000 in pledges from organisations!

We've had an incredible amount of support from all over the world and over the next few months will be raising as much money as we can with a Race Night, a pop up Art Exhibition, cake sales, a very special first edition book auction, a pamper evening, a ready steady cook off, a weight lifting challenge, lots of raffles and a gorgeous ball :-)

We are so so grateful - the response so far has been amazing - we even made it into the paper :-)

Please share the campaign and let's see what magic we can create

Huge love and thanks
Michelle, Rick, Will & Martha
