Grand Tour of Leeds Congenital Heart Network

  • Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could all visit Scarborough and enjoy fish and chips on the beach? Or have a walk around historic York looking at the magnificent buildings? Or even go on a shopping trip to Meadowhall?
    Well, with the power of your collective imagination, and steps we can.
    At this time, more that ever, it’s important that we all keep active and connected to each other, so we would like to invite you, your family and friends to join us on a trip around Yorkshire, visiting all the areas we run local clinics. So, it truly will be a grand ‘walk’ around Yorkshire, Humberside and North Derbyshire.

  • Each week we will set a destination, work out the number of steps we will collectively need to do, and as a big team collect as many steps as we can manage, ending up at our destination together.
    This is not a competition, so please don’t worry if you are at home and not able to get out very much, or at all. That’s where we all work together as one big community to get everyone there. As a national supermarket say ‘every little helps’, so step counts large or small will all add up to a fabulous total.
    As we ‘walk’ together it would be great to see your photographs and the progress you are making.

  • Week 5 Doncaster and Rotherham 29th May – 5th June

    After such a long journey last week we thought we’d have a slightly easier one this week and visit the Wildlife park in Doncaster and Magna Museum so we can all do some learning on the way.

    Along the way we will be waving a big hello to all our friends at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Rotherham Hospital.

    This week we need to achieve 40,162 steps together, so please log into the steps account HERE

    Tasks along the way:-
    • 1st of June is Say Something Nice Day and Global Day of Parents, so perhaps combine the two and say something nice to your parents.
    • 4th of June is Hug a Cat day. Please ask its permission first! If you haven’t got a Cat, what about hugging your Dog, Rabbit, or even give yourself a hug.
    • 5th of June World Environment Day, so let’s think about all the good we are doing by walking rather than driving, and how the environment is benefitting at the moment.

  • We would also like to support The Children’s Heart Surgery on the journey, so people are welcome to make a contribute to the Just Giving page we have set up. Perhaps you could donate the cost of an Ice Cream we will all have when we get to Scarborough, or the fish and chips we have in Grimsby?
    Every week we will have a ‘lucky dip’ and draw out the name of someone who has joined us on that stage of the journey, to receive a small gift from The Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.
