Yes it’s still winter and yes, it’s still cold and dark, but February is that much closer to March (and April and May and June…you get the idea).
Anyway, this February is set to be warmer than January for more reasons than just the weather as it’s National Heart Month.
In celebration of such an important occasion (and coinciding nicely with the arrival of Valentine’s Day, hint hint), the British Heart Foundation is teaming up with luxury handbag and luggage makers Radley to offer all you bag-loving ladies the chance to shop ’til you drop for a whole month.
From the 1st of February, you can donate any unwanted handbags or shoes to your local BHF Shop or Radley Store and you’ll receive a £30 voucher off a new handbag or shoes priced over £149, or a £20 voucher off shoes priced over £100.
The deal lasts for the entire month, so you can keep giving and getting to your heart’s content, safe in the knowledge that you’re not just shopping, but helping an incredibly worthy cause too (like the way I’m making you feel less guilty already?)
And as if that wasn’t enough, celebrities are also getting in on the action by donating some of their accessories, which will be auctioned off on the BHF ebay site www.bhf.org.uk/ebay from Thursday the 17th of Feb for 10 days. So far, Geri Halliwell has donated a union jack Aspinal handbag and Gabby Logan has donated some classic Jimmy Choo knee high boots.
That’s a lot of shoes and bags, ladies. And you know what they say about out with the old and in with the new…
