Onesie Day & The Big Hearted Bake…..Little Hearts really do Matter

14 May, 2013

Yesterday, Tuesday 14th May was our annual Fundraising day!

We had a Onesie wearing, cake eating day, where ISO QSL members of staff raised money for Little Hearts Matter.

Little Hearts Matter offers support and information, and raises awareness of those affected when a child has only half a heart, due to conditions such as Complex Pulmonary Atresia, Tricuspid Atresia, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) or Double Inlet or Outlet Ventricle (Univentricular Heart).  Little Hearts Matter was originally set up in 1994 at the request of parents of children who had a life threatening diagnosis of Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.  There are approximately 200 children diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome each year, but there are a further 400 diagnosed with other single ventricle conditions.

More Information on the charity, how to donate or  to apply for a fund-raising pack can be found at http://www.lhm.org.uk/

Our annual fundraising day for Little Hearts Matter started with all the staff donning onesies for the day!

We then had a visit from Tracy who runs her own business called Naturally Exuberant who gave us a seminar, on ‘food’ in particular the 12 Habit Club, 80/20 Rule,  Brain Chemicals, the foods we eat and how they can affect us.  With a little help from ‘the Shield’, ‘Batman’ & ‘The Joker’  we learnt what hormones within the body are good fat burners/fat storer’s.

Tracy’s presentation was incredibly interesting, and really makes you think if you change just little things in your diet, what a difference it can make to you and the way you feel.  Tracy is definitely passionate about her work and that really shows!  If you are looking to do an internal staff meeting focused on the well being of your employees – then contact Tracy for an informative, fun & vibrant experience http://www.the12habits.co.uk/

Lunchtime meant cake time…….9 cakes to be judged, scored and eaten with a winner announced.  We paid £3 to enter our cakes into the competition, where the cakes were scored out of 10 on appearance, taste and morishness.  The cakes were Key Lime Cheesecake, Baked Cheesecake topped with meringue, Apple Cake, Chocolate Biscuit Cake, Chocolate Cookies, Victoria Sponge, Carrot Cake, Double Chocolate Cheesecake & White Chocolate Raspberry Muffins.

Scores were counted, and announced as:

1st – Key Lime Cheesecake

2nd – Chocolate Biscuit Cake

3rd – White Chocolate & Raspberry Muffins

In total £90.00 was raised for Little Hearts Matter – we raised enough for 9 antenatal pack to recently diagnosed parents, at a time they are completely devastated, terrified and confused.  The pack allows them to understand what the condition is and hear from other parents about their experiences, giving them the information to make an informed decision.
