Charity Tug of War Success

As reported in the Barnsley Chronicle on 7th June, Stephanie 

took part in a Parliamentary tug-of-war this week to raise money for the cancer support charity Macmillan.

The contest took place after parliamentary business had ended for the day, and pitted a team of cross-party MPs against their counterparts in the House of Lords.

The MP team, including Peacock and others from across the political parties, were successful, and take home the trophy until next year’s rematch.

Macmillan’s annual event in Westminster brings politicians from across Parliament together to raise awareness of Macmillan and raise funds to support the work the cancer charity undertakes across the UK.

Commenting, Stephanie said:

“The annual Westminster tug-of-war is a great way of bringing parliamentarians together to help support a fantastic cause.

“Although being a part of the event and taking home the trophy was lots of fun, the most important thing is to help Macmillan continue to do incredible work for people suffering with cancer in Barnsley and across the country.”
