We would just like to share this from our friends over at Heart to Heart UK 

This section is for our Heart to Heart (UK) Group Members to purchase Cubbies for their own children with Congenital Heart Defects, or to sponsor other children with the similar conditions or to sponsor an Angel Heart Warrior Cubbie for parents who have tragically lost their baby/child to Congenital Heart Defects (CHD)

Heart to Heart (UK) is a Facebook group aimed at sending Heart Warrior Cubbies to children all over the UK using donations or by sponsors purchasing for the children included on our waiting list.

If not purchasing for your own child, please ensure you insert the child's parents Facebook name in order that we can contact them for full details and postal address.

Any queries or if you would like to sponsor a cubbie for one of our children, please contact us through the group at
