Graham Evans MP gets to work at the Salvation Army
10:20am Wednesday 5th September 2012 in News
AN MP rolled up his sleeves and got stuck in to an hour of work in Northwich to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The Salvation Army’s Northwich Corps received ‘a gift of time’ from Weaver Vale MP Graham Evans on Friday as part of ‘The Jubilee Hour’.
The Jubilee Hour aims to recognise the Queen’s 60 years of public service by encouraging people to undertake at least 60 minutes of volunteering, or an act of goodwill.
Mr Evans pledged his 60 minutes of volunteering to the Salvation Army in Northwich.
The Salvation Army has a long history of offering practical support to people who are vulnerable or in need in every community.
Captain Imogen Stewart said: “We’re grateful that Mr Evan’s selected Northwich corps for his Jubilee commitment and it recognises the local work that goes on and support available.
“We demonstrate our belief by changing people’s lives within communities and carry out a range of activities for the community most recently linked into the Olympics where we had an Olympic café and sports themed outreach.”
Northwich Corps also has an Ultimate Church display running at the moment which has been designed to deliver a fun and educational visit to your local church.
The corps runs various projects and activities aimed at engaging with all areas of the community from toddlers all the way through to older people.
