Young patient Oscar was all smiles as he enjoyed his ice lolly, while CCNS Lindsay cooled down with a cornetto.

The iced treats were funded by donations made to the CHSF, a self-funded charity which has supported the LCHU since 1988.

It has provided grants for life-saving medical equipment, parent accommodation and ward facilities.

The LCHU is the region’s specialist congenital heart unit treating 17,000 babies, children and adults from across Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire each year.
