IF YOU see red at Grafton Shoppingworld on May 7, it won't be anything to do with shopping rage.

Employees around the centre will be dressed in red to help raise money for the Heart Foundation and organiser, Big W employee Carly Wainwright, encouraged other Clarence Valley businesses to get behind the appeal.

"I want to try and get everyone in Grafton to dress in red for the day and make a gold coin donation," she said.

"Every year I try and get people at Big W to dress in red and my husband does it at Big River Credit Union where he works, but this year I thought I'd go further."

Every dollar raised will be matched, up to $1000, by the Woolworths Corporation. To get your workplace involved and start a collection, contact Ms Wainwright on 0401 391 394.
