The Bolton News: HYNDBURN MP Graham Jones HYNDBURN MP Graham Jones

HYNDBURN MP Graham Jones has praised ‘awesome’ volunteers at a foodbank in Accrington.

The Labour MP for the borough and Haslingden visited Community Solutions North West, in Cannon Street, where he helped volunteers pack food parcels.

Mr Jones said in a series of tweets: “Awesome community response with around 40 volunteers helping out across rooms. The use of foodbanks under David Cameron has rocketed. Prices have risen faster than wages for 40 of the last 41 months.”

Community Solutions is a social enterprise, whose mission is to ‘empower local people to meet local needs within the communities of Lancashire and beyond; promoting interdependence, confidence and self-esteem.’ To donate, volunteer, or to find out more, visit www.csnw .co.uk.

Thats it Mr Jones, push your usual political claptrap. If you didn't think you could score some brownie points with voters you wouldn't have volunteered in the first place!

LT, little suggestion, how about just reporting on the exceptional work 40 volunteers have been doing without having to give some Liebor politician a chance to spout this nonsense?

Totally uncalled for comment in my opinion. Why don't you tell it how it really is? I do not see anything wrong with what you MP has stated. It happens to be true that under this unelected government these facilities have proliferated and are necessary. The MP has appeared at the Food Bank to publicise it. Sure he gains too so it's a Win-Win situation. Credit where it's due mate?
