Barry Gardiner Takes Part in Launch of British Heart Foundation Pop Up Shops

On 7th February 2014 Barry showed his support for the British Heart Foundation (BHF) at the launch of their first ever pop-up shop at the Houses of Parliament.

The BHF shops raise essential funds for life-saving research and help to raise awareness of heart disease which is one of the biggest killers in the UK.

Barry also gave his support to the BHF's 'Ramp up the Red' campaign which encourages everybody to wear something red or host a red-themed event in order to raise awareness of this issue.

Coronary heart disease is the UK's single biggest killer, responsible for almost 74,000 deaths in the UK each year, an average of 200 people each day. There are currently 2.3 million people in the UK living with coronary heart disease.
