My visit to Bassingbourn children’s centre

  I have been visiting children’s centres around Cambridgeshire meeting parents who, like me, are very concerned about the closure of children’s centres. These centres are a key life line to some families and offer support to children and parents.  

Save the Children street stalls

Tash and I have had a busy week in Cambridge, Sawston and Cambourne. We were able to have a number of conversations with members of the public about the importance of the foreign aid budget.
