The amazing Welcome Centre need your vote.
The Welcome Centre do incredible work, helping the people in our society who need a hand up during times of crisis. It’s shameful that nurses and full time workers are being referred to food banks in 21st century Britain, but until we achieve a Labour government we must support one-another through this harsh austerity.
Last year they distributed 5,335 food packs to people in crisis, supporting a total of 3,101 people, more than a quarter of which were children.
Please visit this link and vote for The Welcome Centre to win funding for their pilot scheme to end “Holiday Hunger”.
The behaviour of a minority of people on the “Ale Trail” has been causing issues for a number of residents in Marsden and Slaithwaite.
In recent weeks I have met with the Chief Superintendent, spoken to many residents, and met with representatives from both Northern Rail and Transpennine Express. I am hopeful that together we can come up with a solution to this on-going problem.
Right now – the best thing you can do is please report every incident of illegal or anti-social behaviour to the police by calling 101.
Please share this post to increase awareness and tell everyone you know to report report report! Police response is directly linked to the number of complaints they are made aware of.
Spending on public transport is 6 times more per person in London than around the UK. The news that rail electrification between Leeds and Manchester has been cancelled is unacceptable.
I’m supporting the campaign to bring more investment to our northern railways. This is how you can help:
1. Sign this petition to increase pressure on the government.
2. Share your horror stories of local public transport with me here. The more evidence the better.
Together we will fight for improved services.
The campaign never stops.
Hands Off HRI are staging a “Honk for your hospital” event fortnightly outside HRI. This weekend that was followed by a 24 hour vigil by Let’s Save HRI.
On Monday morning at 6:30am I joined campaigners to leaflet HRI staff as the shift-change occurred. The aim was to reassure the hard-working HRI staff that the campaign is still going ahead at full-steam.
The commitment all of these campaigners show is nothing less than amazing and I’ll never stop fighting alongside them. They have upcoming events including a Men vs Women football match, a sponsored walk, and stalls at every event you can name. Truly inspiring.
