John Penrose MP met with local fundraiser Chris Constantinou to hear about the event he is holding to raise funds for the National Emergency Services Memorial.
Chris Constantinou invited John to meet him at Weston’s Marks & Spencer store to see the huge array of gifts that would be raffled off at his Weekend Extravaganza event, held in Birmingham on January 5th & 6th 2018.
The National Emergency Services Memorial Charity aims to build a memorial that will serve as a symbol of remembrance and gratitude to the sacrifice and work of all UK emergency services personnel.
John said: “I am hugely impressed with the scale of event that Chris has organised to raise money for this great cause. I’m sure the weekend will be a huge success and I look forward to hearing how much these boxes and boxes of amazing gifts make in the raffle!”
