Mary backs "Give a Day's Pay" campaign
Wakefield MP Mary Creagh signed up to support the Independent on Sunday's "Give a Day's Pay" appeal on 7th August.
Along with thousands of IoS readers, Mary has pledged a day's pay to the Disasters Emergency Commitee's East Africa crisis appeal. More than 12 million people are at risk of dying from hunger in East Africa as a result of the worst drought in 60 years.
Two million children under the age of five are malnourished and 500,000 are severely malnourished.
Donations can be made direct to the DEC at www.independent.co.uk/giveadayspay. To give £5, you can text INDY to 70000.
