Twice work for MP

Have your say

High Peak MP Andrew Bingham will be on double time when it comes to volunteering...

The MP will next week be volunteering across the constituency, helping charities and voluntary organisations in advance of National Volunteers Week, which runs from June 1 to 7.

But so many organisations sent in requests for him to help out that he has decided to do another volunteering week in the Parliamentary recess. Mr Bingham said: “I’m delighted so many have asked me to help them, and because of the demand I’ll be doing another week of volunteering at the end of August.

“I will be tweeting about the experiences during the week, and posting photos to my Facebook page. People can follow me on Twitter at @highpeakandrew, and on facebook at”
