A ROMANTIC gesture can be made by Basingstoke shoppers this Valentine’s Day thanks to the British Heart Foundation (BHF) shop.

The branch, in Wote Street, is offering customers the chance to post a heartfelt love note in its shop window until February 16, for a £1 donation to the charity.

Linda Middleton, south east area manager for BHF, said posting a love note is “one of the easiest ways to express your love for that special someone whilst the small donation of £1 will help the BHF fund life-saving research into heart disease.”
