CONGRESS President Gareth Thomas has announced that he has decided to make the Jennifer Brown Research Fund his nominated charity appeal for the year.
Organisers are attempting to raise £ 600,000 to fund a research laboratory dedicated to the memory of the daughter of Chancellor Gordon Brown and his wife, Sarah, who died tragically in infancy last year.
Sarah, who is President of associated charity PiggyBankKids, says she is delighted Gareth has offered to help the medical research initiative which will contribute to safer pregnancies and the delivery of healthy newborn babies otherwise at risk.
The Co-operative Party is helping Gareth's campaign by organising a Parliamentary football tournament; a sponsored "jailbreak" and a host of fundraising social events, details of which will be announced soon.
Anyone who would like to make a donation towards the Congress President's appeal should send cheques or postal orders (payable to the Jennifer Brown Research Fund) to Gareth Thomas MP, c/o The Co-operative Party, 77 Weston Street, London SE1 3SD.
