From their website:

————————Get reddy to join the fun!————————

Wear red and host an event on Friday 5 February 2016, to help beat heart disease. The money you raise will support the BHF’s life saving research.

Why it matters? Heart and circulatory disease takes the lives of more than 400 people in the UK each day. So let’s get red everywhere and help raise money for the British Heart Foundation’s life saving research.


Why not think about arranging a bake sale and get creative with some red food dye!

Or get some friends to sponsor you to dye your hair red?

Instead of raising money, maybe you want to do something to promote cardiovascular health? Try encouraging friends to join you at the gym!

Just don’t forget to remind people why you’re doing all this – heart health is so very important to our bodies and it’s definitely something we take for granted until it starts to cause us problems when we’re older.

Whatever you decide to do, have fun!
