We partnered with Heart Research UK on exclusive T-shirts and pins as part of the Heart of Scotland campaign to tackle heart disease in Scotland. As a Scot Christopher was delighted to be part of the launch on April 10th at The Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh.
“The Heart of Scotland appeal is a cause that is literally close to my heart, anything that can raise awareness and potentially save lives is worthwhile".
Attended by Members of the Scottish parliament, the event was supported by fellow Scots actor Bill Paterson and journalist Kirsty Wark.
In today’s Scotsman newspaper, Christopher explains where the inspiration for the T-shirts came from.
"I use biology and science references a lot in my work. I really loved the idea of being quite factual with an illustration of a biological heart. Neon colours always make me stop and pay attention. Obviously, I wanted it to look fantastic so that people would want to buy it but most importantly I want it to send out a subliminal message. I want people to really think about themselves or family members who might be showing signs of heart disease."
The T-shirt and heart pins in signature neon are now available to buy from the Heart Research UK website.
