The Children's Heart Unit at the Freeman Hospital is one of only two centres in the UK offering paediatric heart transplant, performing almost half of the UK's paediatric transplants. Each year over 300 children each year are treated at the heart unit and over 7,000 return for outpatients support.
"CHUF are very proud of their great working partnership with St Oswald's. We welcome this opportunity to provide further support to a wonderful cause. We also aim to further raise awareness of the great work of CHUF, 10% of those families we support each year are from the Wearside area." - Chris Gray, Chief Executive Officer, CHUF
