MUMBAI: India`s first Miss Universe Sushmita Sen is all set to add glamour to Leicester when she goes to support diabetes charity Silver Star.
Sushmita will launch the charity`s founder Keith Vaz’anniversary appeal for Silver Star, which will mark his twenty five years as the Member of Parliament for Leicester East. The appeal is designed to raise funds for further mobile diabetes testing units in Mumbai and the Midlands. So far Silver Star units have tested 25,000 people in schools, communities, businesses and villages for free, resulting in diabetes caught early and many lives and limbs saved.
"I am delighted to be marking my 25 years as Leicester East`s representative in Parliament with an appeal for this extremely important cause. Sushmita is the first of a number of special guests who will be visiting Leicester to support the appeal. If only I was aware of what could be done with diet and exercise to prevent diabetes, I might never have developed it. With 850,000 people in the UK living with undiagnosed diabetes, Silver Star`s work is vital," said the MP.
The 36-year-old actress will also launch the inaugural Silver Star Fun Run.
