Heart disease appeal

Residents of Lisburn are being encouraged to visit their local BHF Northern Ireland Shop in the run up to Valentine’s Day and help fight heart disease.

BHF Northern Ireland shops across the country are providing the perfect way to romance that special someone this Valentine’s Day by posting a heartfelt Love Note in the shop windows until 16th February. Just pop into your local Lisburn BHF shop with a minimum £1 donation, every penny of profit raised goes on to fund life-saving research into the fight for every heartbeat.

This year celebrities such as Mollie King, Caroline Flack, Cilla Black, Eliza Doolittle, Hilary Alexander, Lee Mears and Lorraine Kelly have written a Love Note for BHF shops.

Writing a Love Note will also help turn the shop window red and support the BHF’s flagship fundraising campaign, Ramp up the Red. On the 7th February, the BHF is asking everyone to pay £2, Ramp up the Red and help fight heart disease. Visit bhf.org.uk/red for more information on how to get involved.

Spokeswoman Michelle McIlwraith, says: “Posting a Love Note in a BHF shop window is one of the easiest ways to express your love for that special someone whilst the small donation of £1 will help BHF Northern Ireland fund life-saving research into heart disease.
