Sign up and help charity

Madam,

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling on people in Derbyshire to sign up for a fundraising pack and support the charity during February - National Heart Month.

There’s a really easy and fun way to help and go Red for Heart by joining in Wear Red Day on Friday 24 February. Anything goes for a suggested minimum donation of £1: wear red shoes, a red tie or even dress head to foot in red. Desks, offices, vehicles and buildings could also be turned red.

For other ways to be a part of Red for Heart and for fundraising tips, order a free fundraising pack at bhf.org.uk/red, contact Sophie Jardine, fundraising volunteer manager for Derbyshire on 01773 822302 or email jardines@bhf.org.uk

For more information please contact Karen Payne in the BHF multimedia team on 01623 666157 / 07734 595898 or email paynek@bhf.org.uk For out of hours please contact the BHF Press Office on 07764 290381.

The British Heart Foundation is the nation’s heart charity, dedicated to saving lives through pioneering research, patient care, campaigning for change and by providing vital information. But we urgently need help. We rely on donations of time and money to continue our life-saving work. Because together we can beat heart disease.
