Established by the Scott family in 1979, CHUF began as the Lesley Anne Scott Memorial Fund after the death of their daughter Lesley Anne, who was born with a serious heart problem. When Anne Scott retired as a Trustee in 1983 it was her wish that the charity should be renamed The Children’s Heart Unit Fund (CHUF) on 27th October 1983.
CHUF celebrated its 35th birthday in October 2018 when the CHUF team and patients on The Children’s Heart Unit at Freeman Hospital were joined by members of the Scott family, longstanding CHUF supporters and the first ever CHUF chairperson for CHUF’s 35th birthday celebrations.
