Blacks and British Heart Foundation: Shoe Amnesty To Fund Lifesaving Research

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.

Blacks & British Heart Foundation Donation Boxes

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.

Determined to see as much of the world as possible, Emma enjoys travelling to new regions especially to ski, sunbathe and soak up the culture. From Lisbon and Barcelona, to Australia and New Zealand, as long as there is some sort of cake on offer, Emma will be happy.

When she's not travelling the world, Emma enjoys walks on the hills, looking after her chickens and trying to be the next Andy Murray on the tennis court.
