On Thursday 8th November our very own PR co-ordinator Lynsey was invited by The RT Hon Jeremy Hunt MP to a key supporter’s luncheon at the House of Commons on behalf of The Katie Piper Foundation. The invitation was a mark of appreciation for the support Karen, Lynsey and the whole team at NBG have shown The Katie Piper Foundation over the past 12 months.
Karen has so far tattooed 6 ladies who live with altered facial appearance as results of burns and scars. Lynsey who has been instrumental in setting this collaboration up has help direct educational footage for use on both the foundation’s website and Karen’s, therefore giving everyone an insight into the benefits of medical tattooing.
Lynsey said of the day “yet again it was an honour to spend time with Katie who has recently been awarded a special recognition award at the Pride of Britain Awards for setting up The Katie Piper Foundation in 2009.Katie and many of the ladies I have met through the foundation are a true inspiration and living proof that scars do not have to limit a person’s function, social inclusion or sense of well being”
