The popular Heart Foundation's 'Lock in the Love' installation returns to the Garden of Unearthly Delights as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival from 11th February to 14th March 2016.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, this unique concept sees South Australians write a message of love for a good cause.

'Lock in the Love' was inspired by the British Heart Foundation's Love concept, and the 'love locks' which once decorated the Seine bridges in the City of Paris.

The impressive installation itself spans over 12 metres wide and 2 metres tall. It has been a labour of love for many South Australian individuals and companies, including prison door manufacturer, Lietzke Doors who built the installation.

All are welcome to contribute to the installation by donating $10 and writing a message of love on a metal heart and locking it onto the sculpture. You can dedicate your heart to your partner, to remember a loved one or to mark a milestone.

The $10 donation will help the Heart Foundation fund vital research, develop guidelines for health professionals, support patient care and help Australians to live healthier lifestyles.

If you cannot visit the installation, you can still add a heart by purchasing it online and sharing it on social media using the hashtag #lockinthelove.

For more than 50 years, the Heart Foundation has been dedicated to saving Australian lives by making a difference to the heart health of all Australians.

"Sadly with heart disease claiming nearly 20,000 Australian lives each year, too many of us understand the heart break of losing a loved one," said Dr Amanda Rischbieth, CEO of Heart Foundation SA.

"At the Heart Foundation, all of the research projects we fund are made possible by the generosity of everyday Australians who help us heal Australian hearts and keeps them beating well into the future," she added.

"To help ensure the installation is a success, we hope the community gets involved by locking in their love, volunteering at the installation or spreading the word to their friends– it's a simple and rewarding way to help save lives from heart disease," Dr Rischbieth said.
