The charity hopes to raise money by making its 180 shop fronts available to supporters who want to decorate a window that will catch the attention of the object of their desires.
A trial last year saw 33-year-old Tamra O’Hara from Greater Manchester donating £20 to paint a marriage proposal in a shop window. She posed as a mannequin behind it, and waited for her boyfriend Syd to walk by. Syd said yes.
“Just imagine your loved one walking past the shop and glancing in to see a special message just for them,” said David Facer, head of trading at the PDSA. “It will truly be a day to remember. If you’re planning to pop the question but are a bit nervous doing it face-to-face, this may be just the solution you are looking for.”
Applications can be made at local PDSA shops.
