Haverhill residents are being challenged to turn heads, warm hearts and save lives on Friday, February 1 by taking part in the British Heart Foundation’s Rock Up in Red Day.
To kick off National Heart Month in style the heart charity is calling on local residents to brush down their red dresses, don scarlet socks or paint fiery fingernails to help raise vital cash to fight heart disease.
Heart disease is an urgent problem in Suffolk with over 30,700 people in the county suffering with the disease. One in three of all deaths are from cardiovascular disease and sadly heart disease kills three times more women than breast cancer. But by turning red, you can help the lifesaving charity reduce these grim statistics.
A famous fashion designer once said, “When in doubt, wear red” and that’s exactly what the British Heart Foundation wants you to do. With a suggested donation of just £2, women, men and children in Haverhill will make a big difference to help give heart disease the boot.
Alex Mayer, British Heart Foundation manager for Suffolk said: “I know we can rely on the generous hearted people of Haverhill to join in the British Heart Foundation’s Rock Up in Red day.
“Your support will help us raise vital cash to fund life saving equipment, ground breaking research and patient care and help keep more hearts beating in Suffolk.”
