Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt is Rocking Up In Red

Rick Parfitt Rock Up In RedWe are very pleased to have heartfelt support from rock legend, Rick Parfitt,  rhythm guitarist for UK band Status Quo, who is Rocking Up In Red for us this February.

Rick has a close link to the cause and is supporting our life-saving work by Rocking Up In Red on the Friday 1 February.

I suffered a heart attack last year, so this is a subject matter that is very important to me

Rick says: “I’m proud to be Rocking Up In Red on Friday 1 February to support such a vital cause. I suffered a heart attack last year, so this is a subject matter that is very important to me. I hope that people around the country will join me in raising money to support the BHF in the life-saving work it carries out.

Myself and the band will be doing our bit, I’ll be wearing red sweatbands and  sunnies whilst I strum on my red guitar. It’s just really easy to do and every £2 goes towards beating the UK’s single biggest killer. Get out that red tie, red t-shirt or that crazy pair of red leather trousers, as long as it rocks and it’s red, it’s right on!”

You can get alongside Rick and Mollie King from the Saturdays and help to give heart disease the boot on Friday 1 February. There is still time to organise a Rock Up In Red event at your work, home, school or with friends and it's so easy to do.
