Young Edinburgh Entrepreneur walks 100k in heels for the BHF


 A few weeks ago 28 year old, Lewis Baker, a Senior Property Manager and Founder and Co-Owner of Blanco Beauty Lounge in Morningside had a heart attack and he wanted to raise awareness that a heart attack can happen to anyone, even young people.

Lewis said “I feel there is a stigma that heart attacks happen to people later on in life and I thought it would be good to get myself fit and raise money at the same time for an amazing cause. So I decided to walk 100k throughout December in heels to help raise money for the charity, with my final walk being on Christmas Day”.

Lewis has been doing his walks every day throughout different locations around Edinburgh, mostly Portobello promenade or he is walking from his house to his office, passing through Waterloo Place, Princes Street then the Westend of the city in a variety of extremely high heels and he has even been wearing his own branded jumper ‘HEEL we go on’ to raise awareness of the British Heart Foundation (BHF).

His aim was to raise a total of £1000 which would have been amazing however, in his first week he raised just under £2000 and is currently sitting at £2237.

Lewis said; “I am really overwhelmed with everyone’s support so far and it has definitely helped on the cold, rainy mornings knowing so many people are supporting me on this. I would love to raise as much as possible so any donations are greatly appreciated during this difficult time”.
