Calling London Mums to support the Mums for Lungs campaign for cleaner healthier air in London

Feb 13 2018

Dear London Mums, I feel very strongly about a new campaign launched by Mums for Lungs, a new local group of parents I know from my son’s former primary school who are campaigning for cleaner, healthier air in London and would like to call everyone to support it. Mums for Lungs is a growing network of parents concerned about the life-long impact of London’s toxic air on our children’s health. The new East Sheen branch of Mums for Lungs has recently contacted me with the main focus of making everyone aware of the London Mayor’s consultation on plans for an expanded Ultra-Low Emission Zone. You might have seen the Mayor’s leaflet on this come through your door a while ago. This public consultation ends on 28 February 2018 so there’s a fast-closing window of opportunity to get something positive done. If you want to help, please take action now –  the deadline is 28th February – and complete a short survey herehttp://bit.ly/2mVHpqo
