I got an email this morning which warmed my heart! It was from Hilary Benn MP who was the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs while I was on secondment to Defra until June this year. More significantly perhaps, he was the Secretary of State for International Development from 2003-2007 and so has significant experience and knowledge of overseas aid. Hilary said “I am very happy for you to put the following quote from me on your website”:
“ColaLife is a really imaginative, practical and worthwhile project which aims to help save people’s lives. I wish the trial every success and I hope you get all the support you deserve.”
Rt Hon Hilary Benn MP
He aslo urged us to keep going! We will.
