Do a runner on your wedding day

That is exactly what postman Billy Richardson did on his wedding day – and it was all to raise money for BHF Scotland!

Billy and his wedding party - a total of 75 friends and family ran a two-mile ‘wedding day dash’, just hours before he tied the knot with Lesley Diack in West Kilbride, Ayrshire.

The pair wanted to remember Billy's late dad, Billy, on their special day. The couple came up with the original idea of a wedding day dash - raising a grand total of £1,092.

With Valentine's day round the corner what romantic gesture with a difference will you be making?

Listen to our Valentine Appeal podcast - we hope it inspires you to get involved in our appeal and raise urgent funds for our Heart Nurse and HeartHelp Line who helps hundreds of thousands of people with heart disease.
