We are hosting the event together with NHS Blood and Transplant and it marks Organ Donation Week – a chance to increase support in Parliament for organ donation and transplant and raise awareness of kidney disease.
Your MP will receive a formal invitation to the event, but it would be really helpful if you could also send them an invitation.
Invite your MP
Please ask your MP if they will attend a reception starting at 4pm on Wednesday 6 September 2017 in the Churchill Room, which is being sponsored by Rehman Chishti MP on behalf of NHS Blood and Transplant and Kidney Care UK. It would also be great if you could tell your MP a bit about yourself and why you believe organ donation is so important in your own words. If your MP is able to come we will pay your travel expenses so you can visit Parliament and meet them to talk about kidney disease. It will also be a chance to meet up with other patients you may have only previously met via Facebook.
How to contact your MP
You can write to email your MP at their office in your constituency; to find the details type in their name to your search engine.
Not sure who your MP is? Don't worry just click here and type in your postcode.
If you don't have internet access and you need to know who your MP is, you can check in your local public library or at your local town hall.
If you’d like more information, are able to come, or even if you’re not able to attend but want to support the event by writing to your MP please can you let Kidney Care UK Policy Director Fiona Loud know by emailing email@example.com.
The sooner you can let me know the better. We will need to have a list of who is attending for security purposes. Thank you for your help, if we do this together it will be a great occasion and I look forward to meeting some of you!
