Do you have the heart to help?

The British Heart Foundation is renewing its annual appeal to get shoppers spreading the love next month.

The charity, which has two shops in Hemel Hempstead’s town centre including a furniture and electrical store, is urging lovers to pick up a heart-shaped note in store for £1.

Valentine’s messages will then be displayed in shop windows until February 16.

The charity’s east of England manager Sonya Pringle said: “Posting a love note is one of the easiest ways to express your love, while the small donation will help us fund life-saving research.”

The shops will also turn red on February 7 to mark the loved-up season.
