Croydon North’s MP Steve Reed appears to be taking Norman Tebbit’s most famous adage to heart.
“On Sunday June 16, I’m taking part in the BHF London-to-Brighton bike ride to raise money for research that saves lives,” Reed said.
“If you can spare a few pounds please make a donation on my fund-raising page. It’s for a very worthwhile cause. Plus you can take credit for helping me lose some of the weight I’ve gained since I became an MP!”
The British Heart Foundation is one of the nominated charities for this year’s Mayor of Croydon, Yvette Hopley, with the borough seeking to become a Heart Town, with greater awareness of heart disease, and the ways to prevent and avoid it.
