Hearts in Covent Garden


When I went to Covent Garden on Monday to buy our new computer cables, I came across this huge glittery display. The British Heart Foundation was raising money by selling little metal hearts, which buyers could write a message on and lock to these wire-framed letters with a red padlock.


Some people wrote messages to their partners or their families. Some wrote to their hometowns. (The Heart Foundation provided Sharpie pens for writing purposes.)



People were having fun posing for goofy photos in front of the letters.


And yes, it's silly, but I succumbed. It was only £3, and the gays needed to represent!

Yes, demographics are key here.
