#RockRedFriday 2021

February is World Heart Month and to celebrate each year we run our ROCK RED FRIDAY campaign.

#RockRedFriday is back in 2021 but with a lockdown twist or should that be twist and shake? With everyone at home due to Covid-19, we wanted everyone to have a bit of fun and hold a #RockRedKitchenDisco on Friday 12th February – all with the aim of raising vital awareness of congenital heart disease (CHD), Northern Ireland’s most common birth defect.

We would love for you and family to get involved!

On Friday 12th February, please wear something red to highlight CHD in children, put some tunes on and dance around your kitchen having lots of fun whilst in Lockdown with family in your very own #RockRedKitchenDisco.

You can even play our very own #RockRedKitchenDisco playlist on Spotify!

To help raise awareness of CHD in children and our support to local families, please show us your moves by sharing your #RockRedKitchenDisco videos/reels/photos on your social media platforms using the following wording and hashtags:

”Today is #RockRedFriday and to celebrate we’re joining Children’s Heartbeat Trust’s #RockRedKitchenDisco! Helping to raise awareness of Congenital Heart Disease in Children.” #CHDAware

If dancing in your kitchen isn’t your thing, you can still wear red to raise awareness of CHD and if have to work, turn your zoom meeting red with our #RockRedFriday background.

Anything you can do to support us will be greatly appreciated.

If you wish to support our services further, you can ask family, friends and work colleagues to also wear red and make a donation to the charity.

Why not add a donate button to your facebook page when posting about #RockRedFriday or create a Rock Red Facebook Fundraiser?

Any funds raised will enable us to provide practical and emotional support to local children and young people with congenital heart disease.

Check out our Impact Report for the real life family story behind our services from heart mum Julie, and how the charity works hard to make sure the needs of heart families are at the core of all our services.

“Telling us that we weren’t alone, no matter what happened in our journey you would be there to help. With so much to worry about, that reassurance meant the world to us!” Heart Mum Julie Marley.
