The South Cleveland Heart Fund helps to keep our regional Cardiothoracic Centre at the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough at the leading-edge of patient care. Serving a population of 1.5 million, patients from Whitehaven in Cumbria to County Durham, Teesside and North Yorkshire benefit from the very latest in diagnostic and therapeutic techniques in cardiology at the unit. Your donations pump-prime advanced procedures, pioneering the techniques that save lives. Your donations fund state-of-the-art equipment, giving specialists the very best diagnostic and therapeutic tools available. Your donations fund research, developing and introducing new cardiothoracic services. Your donations improve facilities in patient care, making their time in hospital comfortable. From the very establishment of the unit the South Cleveland Heart Fund has provided support, raising funds exclusively for our local unit. 100 voluntary, all funds raised go directly to the unit.

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
