Tracey is calling on her constituents in Chatham and Aylesford to host a HEART UK Hearty Tea Party during National Cholesterol Week, after meeting members of the cholesterol charity at Westminster today.
HEART UK’s National Cholesterol Week, which takes place from 17-23 September, aims to raise funds and awareness in the battle to beat the UK’s biggest killer, heart disease.
Hearty Tea Parties give the public the opportunity to raise funds by staging a get-together with family or friends which features heart-healthy food and drink.
Tracey said: “We all know how important it is to eat well and HEART UK’s National Cholesterol Week provides the perfect opportunity to raise money for this worthwhile cause and remind us of the benefits of eating more healthily.
“I sincerely hope my constituents in Chatham and Aylesford take part in National Cholesterol Week and have some fun along the way.”
Healthy eating is a key element of HEART UK’s National Cholesterol Week campaign, with a range of celebrity chefs providing recipes for cholesterol-lowering dishes.
HEART UK Chief Executive Jules Payne said: “I would like to thank Tracey Crouch for supporting National Cholesterol Week and encouraging the people of Chatham and Aylesford to get involved.
“Cholesterol is a silent killer that can affect young and old alike. National Cholesterol Week gives us the opportunity to do even more to help the thousands of people across the UK with raised cholesterol and associated heart conditions.”
