Soup and the Salvation Army

I spent all of Monday in the Constituency this week so that I could go the funeral of an old family friend. The service was at my Dad’s old church in Altrincham, and I’ve not been there for over 20 years. It seemed a lot smaller than I remember. I met up with a lot of people that I had not seen in a long time, and a few who I’d seen only a few months ago at my Dad’s funeral.
This all meant that I didn’t travel down to London until this morning, and for the second train journey in a row there was a delay, this time due to high winds bringing down some electricity cables around Hemel Hempstead. Fortunately it didn’t delay me too long and I still managed to go and support the “Soup Lunch” hosted by The Salvation Army in Victoria Tower Gardens, and to hear about the excellent work that goes on all year round to support the homeless and the lonely.

I was joined by fellow Lib Dem MP Andrew Stunell for the Soup Lunch. We're pictured here with Major Ivor Telfer, Assistant Secretary for Programmes at the Salvation Army
