Mike joins Rehman Chishti MP collecting food for the Armed Forces in Afghanistan

260113 collecting food in Rainham 002

A bitterly cold morning in Rainham Shopping Centre this morning carrying out our usual Parliamentary Street Stall with Rehman Chishti MP but with the added bonus of collecting food and handing out food collection boxes to local residents for the Armed Forces serving in Afghanistan. We were also joined by our Rainham North colleague Cllr David Carr.

Whilst the weather was cold, the local folk certainly weren’t and many took away collection boxes to bring back next week and lots of folk went into the local shops and delivered the food to us today.

Many residents expressed their praise for the way that the snow was dealt with by our Highway teams.

An excellent morning with much positive support.

Thank you to all of the residents who stopped by to chat, bring food or to take away the food boxes.
