Pink Champagne, red roses, chocolates and soft toys wrapped in a bow, culminating with a table for two at a restaurant on 14th February. This Valentine’s Day, we’re thinking less about love hearts, and more about the love of our hearts; the organ that pumps blood through the body, supplying us with oxygen and nutrients and removing carbon dioxide and waste. The organ that keeps us alive.

Kicking off on Valentine’s Day, LABS is running a two week campaign to support the British Heart Foundation, a registered charity that funds research to keep hearts beating and blood flowing. Through a varied programme of fun and dynamic events, we will promote powerful dialogue around heart health, create experiences to help you take care and host activities to get hearts racing. All money raised will be fund matched by LABS and the total donated to the British Heart Foundation.
