Clarence Valley Independent

Who are you wearing red for this Valentine’s Day?

Ed,

Shockingly, heart disease kills one Australian every 29 minutes, that’s 50 people every single day. Given that it is the biggest cause of Australian deaths, it would be impossible for almost every Australian to not be impacted in some way.

 The simple fact is that research saves lives. Heart Research Australia aims to reduce the devastating impact heart disease has on families and the community by supporting world-class and emerging researchers to conduct ground-breaking research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.

 That’s why this February, we invite Australians to get involved with Wear Red Day for someone close to their heart to help keep families together for longer. Whether it’s a family member, wife, husband, or that special friend who means the world to them, or in memory of someone they loved who sadly passed away due to heart disease.

 Getting in involved as simple as wearing red and donating to Heart Research Australia during the month of February. To find out more please visit

 On behalf of the thousands of Australians impacted by heart disease every year, thank you for your support.

Nicci Dent

CEO, Heart Research Australia

Now you’re here …

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
