Big Red Heart Appeal
What is the Big Red Heart Appeal?
The Big Red Heart Appeal is about helping those who suffer with heart problems recieve the right treatment at the right time, together with the right amount of care available locally.
Initially, the Big Red Heart Appeal was under the guise of Grimsby District Health Care Charity. This was run by the late Retired NHS Public Governor Mr Ron Kitchen. After he suffered major heart trouble, he ended up having a double heart bypass. He then renamed the charity, this became as you know today as the Big Red Heart Appeal.
Today, it is under the guise of the Health Tree Foundation, still based at the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital. This charity funder, helps with health related funding requests for people and the hospital to raise vital funds for any equipment or service locally within the NLaG (North Lincolnshire and Goole) area. This includes Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Goole.
The Positively Disabled Group are helping to raise money for a heart monitor. This is for the Coronary Care Unit in the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby.
So far, we have raised £270. But there are still more fundraising needs to be done.
