The Mason Foundation receives letter from 10 Downing Street

Following the Government’s announcement in March to incentivise exercise and take meaningful action against Britain’s obesity crisis; we wrote to the Prime Minister to express our support and offer Boris one of our very own Mason Mile jackets!

Our aim to ‘put Boris in purple’ derived from the Government’s obesity strategy, to which The Mason Foundation is so well aligned. We know Boris has had his own health struggles following his experience with COVID-19 last year, which subsequently fueled his decision to embark on his weight loss journey. This emphasises the importance of initiatives like The Mason Mile, which enable people from all walks of life to take their first step towards a more active, healthier and happier lifestyle.

We are delighted to have received a response from 10 Downing Street, celebrating the ongoing work The Mason Foundation is doing to empower people to do ‘Their Mile, Their Way’.
