Ed Miliband MP celebrates local fundraiser


Ed recently met local constituent Margaret Tarren a dedicated fundraiser who has raised over £20,000 for Macmillan.

Ed was joined by Elected Mayor, Ros Jones and Civic Mayor, George Derx, at a celebration to say thank you to Margaret for her hard work.

Margaret has fundraised for Macmillan and supported Mary’s Meals, a charity that provides one good meal a day to some of the world’s poorest children. Margaret also supports local charities within her community.

Ed said:

“Margaret is a community hero – she has devoted her time to raising much needed funds for local and national charities. I know Macmillan is close to Margaret’s heart and her first fundraising event was a coffee morning in 1995 where she raised £117.

Too often fundraisers don’t get the recognition they deserve for their selfless efforts to raise money. Today I want to thank Margaret for all of her hard work and her on-going contributions to so many charities.”
