Electric Heart of England

          The year's turned. We're heading towards winter and Christmas , so here's  a reminder of Jason Hunt's appeal for Birmingham Children's Hospital's new cardio-unit.

          Jason is holding auctions and events throughout this year to raise money for the hospital, and we at Authors Electric have given books to be raffled.

          Jason's 'Just Give' page is here: - http://www.justgiving.com/BCH2012   Jason has now raised, magnificently,  £1,915. That's 95% of his  £2000 target.

         Visit the site, and see how people have been holding bake sales, and quizzes, ghost nights and raffles to raise money. It's wonderful!

          Donating through JustGiving is totally secure. Your details are safe - JustGiving will never sell them on or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate.

          Birmingham Childrens’ Hospital see over 225 thousand sick children, from all over the UK, every year, and 10,000 children a year in their cardiac unit alone.  One in every hundred children is born with a congenital heart problem, and the hospital needs to replace worn and outdated equipment and – as their reputation grows and demand for their service rises – they need to build a second cardiac theatre.
