According to British Heart Foundation, on this day, in the UK:
7.4 million people are living with a heart or circulatory disease
13 babies will be diagnosed with a heart defect
280 people will be admitted to hospital due to a heart attack
470 people will die from a heart or circulatory disease
The facts and figures are staggering but the British Heart Foundation's vision is simple.
To educate, research and visualise a world free from fear of heart and circulatory diseases. The money they raise goes towards research cures and treatments to help beat heartbreak for good.
And here at Blacks, we realise just how important the heart is. Not only is it powering your body every minute of every day, it's pushing you to reach the highest peak, pumping blood to your muscles for your next trail run and keeping all the juices flowing for your next yoga session.

To help raise awareness and funds for lifesaving research we have teamed up with British Heart Foundation to provide recycled clothing collection boxes in-store.
