One of the nicest things about being an MP is that you are welcomed to a wide variety of events in the community where cake and cups of tea are rarely in short supply.
All of these events share a common theme - they showcase the people in our communities who regularly dedicate themselves and their time to worthwhile causes, and they are excellent places for friends and neighbours to come together in a social setting.
At the end of September people like this from all around the country worked in unison to create the world’s biggest coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Events w ere arranged all around the country and thousands of pounds were raised for a fabulous charity. Local groups in Tameside made a fabulous contribution, organising events in virtually every town.
I was able to get to events at Pinfold Primary School, Hollingworth Methodist Church, and the Hub in Hattersley. Everyone involved did a marvellous job and I was happy to go along and show my support.
