THE Citizen’s charity of the year received a special visit last week from a senior MP.

Shadow International Development Secretary Ivan Lewis visited the Food Bank last Thursday for an event on tackling hunger.

The show, at MK Christian Centre in Oldbrook, included stalls from Just Trading MK, Eye2Eye Fairtrade, Bletchley based charity Toybox and the Food Bank.

Labour MP Mr Lewis said: “I was delighted to meet campaigners in the city and hear more about the work of excellent local groups, like Toybox and WorldVision.

“I was particularly impressed by Milton Keynes Food Bank and the work they do supporting families in need. I hope people will give generously to them over the winter months.”
