Rock Up In Red For National Heart Month

More Than Mummies is really happy to support and spread the word about the British Heart Foundation’s new Rock Up In Red campaign to help raise funds and awareness.

On 1 February 2013, to kick off National Heart Month, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) is asking the great British public to Rock Up In Red, donate £2 and join the fight against heart disease.

BHF Rock up in red

Whether it’s dying your hair red, donning a red tie or a red scarf or going all out and rocking a top to toe red outfit, the BHF is urging people across the UK to organise a Rock Up In Red day at work, school or in your local community to raise funds that will go directly towards vital research, support and care for those suffering with heart and circulatory disease.

 

 

Heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer. It kills one in six men and one in nine women and is responsible for almost 80,000 deaths in the UK each year, an average of 220 people each day.

The Saturday’s Mollie King has been announced as the face of National Heart Month and is supporting Rock Up In Red. Mollie says: “I’m thrilled to be supporting the British Heart Foundation this February by rocking up in red and joining the fight against heart disease. Whether it’s red nails, red lipstick or even red socks, it’s really easy to do and for just £2 you’ll really be helping the BHF continue its life-saving work. Anything goes, as long as it’s red!”

If you want to get involved with Rock Up In Red, simply encourage your colleagues, friends or pupils to wear something red, have fun and make a donation.  A workplace, group or organisation can Rock Up In Red and give £2 each – or schools can do it for £1 per pupil.

As well as being the leading cause of death, nearly 2.7 million people in the UK are living with heart disease, many of whom struggle with everyday tasks.

Rock Up In Red this February and make a heartfelt statement for your loved ones. To order your free fundraising pack, just go to bhf.org.uk/red or call the hotline on 0300 330 0645.

And you can also show your support by tweeting or tagging Instagram photos with the hashtag #rockupinred!
