The money raised by the campaign will be used to fund research into heart and circulatory disease, which kills 250,000 people a year in Britain.

At the Domestic and General (D&G) call centre in Queen Square, Brighton, about 400 staff turned up to work wearing red and donated at least £1.

So far they have raised more than £1,000 – and rising, said a D&G spokesman.

HR manager Nicki Perry said: “As well as raising money for a good cause, the campaign is helping us increase awareness of the causes of heart and circulatory conditions among our workforce, which of course we fully support.

“People often overlook the risks to heart health that certain lifestyle choices can have. Unfortunately this is a huge risk considering heart disease affects so many people.”
