From the British Heart Foundation’s blog:-
“A Wrexham romeo took advantage of our Red for Heart Love Notes scheme in BHF shops to ask his girlfriend to marry him.
Lee Hine bought one of the Love Notes – on which customers can write romantic messages then post in the shop window – and wrote a poetic proposal to Michelle Nicholas.
According to the Wrexham Evening Leader, Michelle was browsing in the shop so didn’t know what Lee was up to, until he showed her the note.
Fortunately Michelle said yes, as customers and BHF shop staff cheered.
You can also support the BHF by taking part in their 54 mile London to Brighton Bike Ride:-
“This year, the nation’s favourite 54 mile bike ride from the capital to the coast will be taking place on Sunday 21 June 2009.
This is a tremendously fun challenge that anyone* can achieve with a little training! Be sure you make a note of the registration opening dates below as this event is always oversubscribed!
For the first time ever, you will be able to register online for this year’s Ride.
Standard Entry is the way that most people register for this event. Registration opens on 1 March 2009 so be sure to visit this site as close to that date as possible as places are likely to sell out really quickly. It’ll be well worth sticking the date in your diary!
Priority entry – important information
If you raised over £125 in sponsorship in 2008’s event, you will be eligible for Priority Entry. Information on how to register for Priority Entry will be sent out during the week beginning 5 January 2009, and registration will be available from 6 January 2009.
Priority Entry registrations must be received by 28 February 2009 to be guaranteed.
Entering a team
If you’re keen to enter as a team, start recruiting your team members before the registration start date so you can all go to the site and register as close to 1 March as you can. You’ll need to make sure you all use exactly the same team name otherwise you may be treated as different teams. Please try to be accurate about the size of your team as once you’ve reached the maximum number for that size (pending availability) no one else will be able to join your team.
If you are entering a team as a Priority Entry, you will receive separate instructions from the BHF on what to do.
