Staff at the British heart Foundation shop in Honiton are promoting National Heart Month by encouraging people to write personal messages.By donating £1, customers can write their own message which will be displayed in the shop window during the month.The national campaign has the support of the likes of actress Imelda Staunton, TV presenter Anthea Turner and interior decorator Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen.Kate Chesson, who manages the shop, said they had already had some interest in the scheme and were hoping that more people would take up the opportunity.The British Heart Foundation has also launched Wear Red to Work Day, which is set to take place on Friday, February 13.A spokesman for the charity said: "Red is considered a lucky colour in some countries, so what better day than unlucky-for-some Friday 13 to wear red?"Red is a key colour for this season, so there is no excuse for your colleagues not to get involved."The colour red is also thought to stimulate a faster heartbeat and breathing and can even give you a competitive edge."By wearing red, for a suggested donation of £1, you will help the BHF save lives through pioneering research, patient care, campaigning for change and by providing vital information."Together we can save the life you love.
