Supper With The Minister

On Friday 19th October we had one of our branch fundraisers with Andy Burnham, Chief Secretary to the Treasury and M.P. for nearby Leigh, as Speaker.

We had over forty members present from Salford, Manchester, Bury and Prestwich and it was a great event.

Everyone seemed to have a good time. Hazel Blears was there and introduced Andy, who spoke very well about his experience so far in Cabinet.

This is a good Labour event. We've organised three so far this year which has allowed our branch to raise over £1,000 this year. Its good of both Hazel and the Cabinet Ministers involved to give up their time. It was also good to see Francine, Emma and Carla from our friends Thompsons the Solicitors.

Through the fundraising we're in a good position to carry on campaigning for next May's local elections.
