Charlie’s trip to the Houses of Parliament

March 22, 2019

Charlie took a trip to the Houses of Parliament this week to meet with MP Paula Sheriff and she’d like to share with you a diary entry of her day!….. 

“On Tuesday 19th March, I went to the Houses of Parliament to see Paula Sheriff to discuss the matter of mental health.

“After a 2.5 hour train ride my legs were dead and we had to rush to the hotel to drop our bags and find our way to Parliament! Then I had to queue and my legs were shaking whilst waiting to see Paula Sheriff – the MP for Dewsbury.

“I met Paula and we spoke for a while and then had a tour of Parliament, both the part where visitors can go and the bit where general visitors aren’t allowed. Whilst there, we watched a debate about Brexit and it was amazing! 

“I went to London because of my involvement in the Take 10 support group, helping people with mental health and being young carers. I am really grateful for their support and I volunteer in this group to support others. 

“Both me and my Mum are really thankful to Paula for inviting us down to London and for the experience. I asked Paula if she would support our school during Mental Health Awareness week in May and she agreed!” 

Here is a picture of the day!
