It is an honour to be elected as the Member of Parliament for Stoke-on-Trent Central, and it is a job I do not take lightly. This is my first opinion piece in the Stoke Sentinel and I look forward to sharing many more exciting developments in the months and years to come.
I read with interest the article on deprivation in Stoke-on-Trent which looked at the 2019 English Deprivation Indices. I agree we must make a concerted effort to make sure things have got better by the next report.
This week I was at the British Legion stand outside the Intu Potteries centre hearing about the great new ways to fund the British Legion’s activities all year round – the Poppy Lottery and monthly giving – which is eligible for Gift Aid so benefits them more.
