Residents in Cromer, Sheringham and Holt 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 Norfolk. One in three of all deaths is from cardiovascular disease. It is a problem that affects both men and women. Women are more than three times more likely to die of coronary heart disease 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”. That’s exactly what the British Heart Foundation wants you to do. With a suggested donation of just £2, women, men and children in Norfolk will make a big difference to help give heart disease the boot.

Alex Mayer, British Heart Foundation Manager for Norfolk said: “I know we can rely on the generous hearted people of North Norfolk 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 Norfolk.”
