Bromsgrove marketing communications agency, Gough Bailey Wright, has helped to save lives in February – National Heart Month – by raising money to support the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) Red for Heart campaign.
Colleagues joined fundraisers across the country by turning up to work on Friday (25th February) wearing as many red items of clothing as possible to support the British Heart Foundation. The company has raised over £200.
Sue Bailey, Managing Director at Gough Bailey Wright, said: “The office was awash with a sea of red on Friday, with the team making a special effort to raise money for such a worthwhile cause.
“Wear Red Day has a special significance to us as we are also supporting Donna’s Dream and the Campaign for an Opt-Out Only Organ Donor Register. Donna, a colleague’s niece, got married this time last year, but sadly passed away in July whilst waiting for a third heart transplant.”
Jackie Skeel, Head of National Campaigns at the British Heart Foundation, said: “Thank you to Gough Bailey Wright for going Red for Heart, with their support we can continue our vital life saving work and continue the fight against the UK’s biggest killer. 2011 is an extra special year for the BHF as it’s our 50th birthday, so there’s never been a better time to join the celebrations and get involved.”
