MP visits Tom and Claire’s @CRY_UK screenings #Ealing #Acton #London
Ealing Central and Acton MP Dr Rupa Huq visited Tom and Claire’s Fund’s free CRY heart screenings at the Florence Road Health Centre, Ealing, on Sunday, November 15.
Nearly 100 young people aged 14-35 attended the fully booked event.
Dr Huq said: “It was a really eye-opening experience to see for myself how a CRY screening works and impressive that such a diverse range of people from different cultural backgrounds were waiting to be tested. The message is getting out about the importance of screening and I would urge everybody in the age range to take the opportunity to be tested.
“It’s brilliant to have a CRY team working in Ealing and I can’t thank them enough.”
She added: “I’d also like to praise all those people who have supported Tom and Claire’s Fund over the years. Without their efforts, raising awareness and funds, these free screenings couldn’t take place. It was a pleasure to meet some of the fund’s supporters on the day.”
Paul Clabburn said: “Ellen and I are very grateful to Dr Huq for spending so much time at the screening and also for joining CRY’s All Party Parliamentary Group. We are also, of course, indebted to the CRY team for the highly professional but hugely welcoming way in which they go about their work and to Dr Evans and the team at the Florence Road health centre who have yet again hosted the event.”
Tom and Claire’s Fund has sponsored more than 1,200 free heart screenings since 2009. It will sponsor further screenings in 2016.
