On Friday 5th February people across the UK will be wearing red in support of “Wear It! Beat It!” for the British Heart RedFoundation. Help put an end to heart disease by getting together and raising as much money as you can!

Wear It! Beat It!

The British Heart Foundation is fighting for every heartbeat, but they need our help to beat heart disease once and for all! Wear It! Beat It! Is an event where schools, companies and individuals can get dressed up and fundraise for the cause! As with any charity event you can be as creative as you like with your money making methods. You could set up a photo booth at your work or school where people give £2 to put on funny fancy dress and have their picture taken. You could bake lots of red coloured foods and treats and have a red themed afternoon tea. The possibilities are endless!


If you can help then sign up now and grab yourself a free fundraising starter pack from the BHF team. You will receive a poster, invitations, a fundraising guide, a money box, stickers, a sweepstakes game, DIY bunting, a selfie frame, a donation sheet and your paying in slip, all you’ll need is RED! You can support the cause even further by purchasing t-shirts, mugs and wristbands from the events page and sport them at your fundraiser.


Now it’s time to add your own touches! Now when it comes to finding fun red accessories, you’re spoilt for choice. Here at Hollywood we have a huge range of funky hats, tights, tutus, wigs and face paints to get you ready for your Wear It! Beat It! Event. If you want to go all out and really get yourself noticed, why not get yourself a fun costume? We have some brilliant themed costumes like a red hot chilli pepper, or a red angry bird! Come and see us in store for all of your red fancy dress.

The money you raise will help fund thousands of research projects, find and improve treatments and also help pay the nurses who are looking after your loved ones while they are suffering with heart problems. Every penny counts so whether you raise £5 or £5,000 you can do it with confidence that you are making a difference. Thanks to the great work The British Heart Foundation have already done 7 in 10 heart attack victims get to go home to their families.
