I am writing to thank all your readers who helped to make the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Red for Heart campaign such a success in February.

It was great to see so many people going red for National Heart Month - from wearing red to work or school to buying the Red for Heart pin badge, from writing a love note in their local BHF shop to raising funds in their own way by going red.

We are also extremely thankful to those people who gave their time for free and organised events and other fundraising activities.

The money your community raised throughout the Red for Heart campaign will help save lives through pioneering research, patient care, campaigning for change and by providing vital information.

It is only with your support that we can beat heart disease together and save the life you love.

If people would still like to donate to the campaign they can simply visit bhf.org.uk/red or call 0845 241 0976.


Head of fundraising, BHF
