Healing Little Hearts

Press Release: Healing Little Hearts proudly presents “Give with Love” Charity Ball to raise funds to save the lives of babies and children

A black tie charity ball is being organised in aid of Healing Little Hearts (HLH).
The “Give with LoHLH GWL FB signature NEW 181214ve” Charity Ball will take place on Saturday 14th February 2015 at the Platinum Suite, Cobden Street, Leicester. HLH are inviting members of the local Leicestershire community and beyond to come together to enjoy an evening of entertainment and fundraising. The evening will include a 3 course meal, complimentary wine on every table, DJ and entertainment provided by “Signature” – the world’s number 1 Michael Jackson Tribute Act, as seen on Britain’s Got Talent and the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.

The aim of the ball is to help raise much needed funds for HLH (charity no. 1130194) to continue to send medical teams to India to provide free lifesaving heart surgery for babies and young children. Every two minutes a baby is born that requires heart surgery. This translates to 60,000 children with heart problems that have no access to the desperately needed care that will allow them to live long and healthy lives. It costs only £500 to save a child’s life. All money raised goes directly to saving as many lives as possible.

Local businesses and industries are being approached with a request for support for this event in the form of direct sponsorship and/or donations for the charity auction or rae taking place on the evening.

Dr Sanjiv Nichani, Founder of HLH and Consultant Paediatrician at Leicester Children’s Hospitals said

“The committee are very excited about the ball and are actively seeking sponsorship from a number of companies. Over the last 7 years we have gone from strength to strength and as at the end of 2014 have completed 525 life saving heart operations in 6 hospitals in India. We hope this event will enable us to push on from here and hope that 2015 will be our biggest year to date”.

Any oer of support is greatly appreciated as it will result in a child’s life being saved by YOU! For reservations or further information please contact us on 0116 229 0023 or events@healinglittlehearts.org.uk

Notes to editors:
Healing Little Hearts is a registered charity, founded in 2007, that aims to send teams of medical volunteers every 4-6 weeks to India to perform free lifesaving heart surgery on babies and young children. All medical volunteers and committee members take no nancial remuneration and therefore every penny goes towards saving a life. We receive no government funding and rely solely on the generous donations from the public. We are the only charity in the world that goes to India with such frequency to address this huge problem.
