Red Sky Foundation’s mission is to improve the lives of people needing cardiac care who are born with or develop heart conditions by providing lifelong support to them and their families. We do this by providing a range of services to relieve sickness and preserve the health of individuals in the UK. We assist with the provision of grants, equipment and awareness to support the world class Children’s Heart Unit at The Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, other cardiac hospital units and we also support other regional health services within the NHS and other charitable organisations.
Red Sky Foundation provides life-saving defibrillators for local schools and public spaces, working with local education and council representatives. We collaborate with third party organisations to offer a range of training and education from defibrillator use and CPR through to advanced support for babies, children and adults with heart problems and their families.
Our vision is to help little hearts and their families by providing much needed support through our fundraising work. We strive to raise awareness of heart health and enable our supporters and contributors to spread the word, making a positive impact across our local communities, schools and city centres.
WHERE THE MONEY GOES
We raise vital funds for large and small pieces of equipment, facilities and aftercare for the Children’s Heart Unit and other district hospitals providing coronary care. However, we go far beyond funding cardiac machines and nursing care; we make a positive impact across our local communities, our schools and our city centres with our inclusive defibrillator programme making the region a safer place to enjoy.
LATEST NEWS AND EVENTS
Every penny really does count and can make a huge difference to helping us help someone needing coronary care. Whether it’s a one off donation or you want to donate on a more regular basis using credit/debit card, PayPal, cheque, Just Giving or Enthuse.com.
Red Sky Foundation already has partnerships with a number of well-known businesses and corporate clients. Through these partnerships funds are raised through sponsorship, events and awareness campaigns.
Any money you donate to us can be Gift Aided. Gift Aid means that Red Sky Foundation can claim back the 25% tax paid on donations from HM Revenue & Customs. This adds up to a huge amount of money so we just want to remind all of our supporters to remember to gift aid all donations.
