Mary and Apprentice Star Join Forces to Make A Difference
Wakefield MP Mary Creagh signed up to make a difference and improve the local community this week. Mary joined pop mogul Pete Waterman and BBC Apprentice star Claire Young, to launch CSV’s Make a Difference Day.
The campaign – now in its fourteenth year – is the UK’s biggest day of hands-on volunteering. This year, the campaign is dedicated to creating a wave of small ‘kindness acts’ as a way to bring communities together, in an uncertain economic climate.
Mary Creagh, MP for Wakefield said: “It’s easy to forget how powerful we are to make changes. Through volunteering we can take action to spread kindness and make a real difference - which is why I’m signing up this year.”
CSV supporter, Wakefield Born BBC Apprentice Star (2008) Claire Young said: “My motto ‘just do it’ applies to business but also everything I do, and I like to see things getting done instead of waffling on! With so much financial uncertainty flying around, we need each other more than ever. If every MP signed up to volunteer to spread a little kindness imagine what could be achieved!”
Mary and Claire have agreed to join forces to turn a local piece of wasteland into a community garden in October.
