People in Hull and East Yorkshire are being encouraged to wear red for a day to support the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and help to raise money for heart research.

Almost 14,700 people die in Yorkshire and the Humber every year from heart disease and circulatory problems, while 620,000 people in the region live with it day to day.

To combat this and support the seven million people who have to live with heart disease in the UK, the British Heart Foundation is asking people to don their red robes and scarlet shorts for its Wear it. Beat it fundraiser on February 6 2015.

There are also loads of resources to help people get involved on the BHF’s website, including a free pack of posters, stickers and fundraising ideas.

Louise Parkes, BHF fundraising director, believes that the day will provide a fantastic opportunity for people to come together and fight heart disease while helping people who live with the condition.
