The money was raised by an organised Fire Walk which ignited participants' bravery and generosity.
This fundraising was motivated by baby Erin, who was born with a serious heart condition and is currently receiving treatment at Clark Clinic in the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.
The Brown family would like to thank all those who braved the burning coals, the local businesses who donated prizes for their raffle and Fire Walking Ireland.
They would also like to extend their thanks to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at the RBHSC and surgeon Bill McCallion who saved Erin's life and is pictured here with her family presenting the cheque to the two charities.
Helping Hand and Children's Heartbeat Trust thanked the family for their fundraising efforts and support. Sarah Quinlan, executive officer with Children's Heartbeat Trust, said, "We are very thankful to Lynsey and Sean Brown and their family for organising this fantastic event and raising these essential funds. This will help us continue to provide support for parents and families of children with heart disease in Northern Ireland."
She added, "Over 250 children each year are born with heart disease in Northern Ireland and one third of these children will require further investigation and even surgery. This support will make a very real difference to the lives of these families and children."
Children's Heartbeat Trust works closely with the Clark Clinic at the RBHSC to help fund top quality medical equipment and initiatives, ensuring that children with heart disease in Northern Ireland receive the best care and treatment possible.
