I was pleased to welcome Heidi Allen and Frank Field to Leicester recently to hear from residents, charities and organisations about the impacts of Universal Credit here in Leicester West. 

As trustees of Feeding Britain, Heidi and Frank are travelling the country to listen to people who have been affected and learn more about what can be done to support vulnerable families and I was delighted that Leicester was the first stop on their tour. 

During their time in Leicester they visited E2’s foodbank and heard from local residents who are struggling to make ends meet, including one lady who is struggling to survive on her pension and support her son who recently suffered a stroke and is being told he is fit enough to take a job over 40 miles away!  During their visit I chaired a meeting of the Feeding Leicester group who shared their experiences of how they are supporting vulnerable families from across the city.

Today I visited Glenfield Hospital to deliver my gift for an older person staying in hospital this Christmas.

Christmas can be a very lonely and difficult time for many older people, let’s help make Christmas special for them! Please donate a gift, today is the deadline so if you can, take your donations to the main receptions at Glenfield, the Royal or the General.

I am thrilled to congratulate Leicester College on being recognised as a Centre of Excellence for maths! 

The college is the only Centre of Excellence in maths in the whole of Leicestershire and only the second one in the whole of the East Midlands!

This is fantastic news and a real testament to dedication of the leadership team and teachers at the college who work so hard to support those students who are struggling to understand maths.

It is absolutely essential that young people leave education with their GCSE and a good understanding of maths if they are to succeed and continue to grow in their future careers.

This recognition will equip the college with extra resources to provide help and support to even more students, not just from the college but right across our city and the region.
