A Wolverhampton charity is encouraging people to ‘share the love’ in the run up to Valentine’s Day as part of a new campaign.
Compton Care is asking its supporters, patients, staff and volunteers to tell someone how much they mean to them by purchasing a Compton love heart. People can write a message on their hearts and these will then be displayed in the charity’s brand-new Retail Plus store at St George’s in the city Centre.
Aaron Smith, Retail Area Manager said: “The past 12 months have been tough for everyone. We’ve faced three national lockdowns, some of us have lost a loved one, it’s been a really difficult time. This campaign is all about sharing the love, spreading a little bit of happiness and raising essential funds needed so that we can continue to care for the community.
“You could leave a message for your mum on one of our hearts to tell her how much of a rock she has been throughout the pandemic or leave one for your colleague who has cheered you up when you’ve felt low. Or why not leave a message for your partner just to tell them how much you love and appreciate them?
“Whoever you want to say thank you to why not do it in a big way and have your message displayed in the centre of Wolverhampton on the windows of our Compton Care Superstore?
“You can also get involved on social media by sharing a message of love using the hashtag #ShareTheLove. If you’re doing essential shopping in the centre of Wolverhampton and pass by our Retail Plus store, take a selfie with the love heart that you’ve bought and share on social media with us. Don’t forget to tag us in.”
The love hearts can be purchased from £1.99 in either grey or yellow to match the charity’s colours by visiting comptoncare.org.uk/
