Black Horse Foundation

Australia’s little battlers – those struggling with Childhood Heart Disease (CHD) – received a great big boost with Lloyds International’s Black Horse Foundation providing $283,405.32 for HeartKids in 2011.

At HeartKids we greatly appreciate the generosity of the Black Horse Foundation, not only in selecting HeartKids as one of the two children’s charities to receive support for 2011/2012, but in conducting Lloyds International employee driven workplace giving and other fundraising activities throughout 2011.  The effort and support which the Black Horse Foundation has been able to achieve in its fundraising efforts has enabled HeartKids to run its Teen Camp in January 2012, a teenager camp run with children attending from all over Australia who will benefit from a time of encouragement and support with others their own age; as well as ensuring a continued presence of HeartKids in Children’s Hospitals around the country.”
