A West Lancashire MP has given her backing to a charity by hosting a pop-up shop in the Palace of Westminster.
Rosie Cooper MP met shop staff and volunteers to hear how the British Heart Foundation shops raise vital funds for life-saving research and added her voice to the call for people to Ramp up the Red this February by wearing the colour to show their support.
Ms Cooper MP said: “I am delighted to help raise awareness of heart disease by taking part in Ramp up the Red.
“By popping up in Parliament, the BHF has reminded us of the vital role their shops play in raising funds for life-saving research.”
Mike Taylor, Retail Director at the BHF, said “We wanted to show MPs just how important our shops are – without our shop staff, including 23,000 volunteers across the UK, we simply couldn’t continue our life-saving work.”
