The leader of the Labour Party was in Lincoln yesterday and one of our directors Kate Strawson and Junior Account Executive Shey Osibowale had the privilege of meeting him!
Ed Miliband was invited to The Showroom Conference Centre – which is run by our charity of the year, Lincolnshire YMCA – for a Q&A session with local members of the public in an attempt to win their support.
The Labour Party leader showed us that it’s not all work with him by starting his busy day playing pool with some of the children taking part in half-term fun and games in The Showroom Activity Centre.
During the Q&A session, Mr Miliband answered questions relating to a range topics including the education system, housing benefits and the healthcare service.
At the end of his visit Malcolm Barham, Chief Executive of Lincolnshire YMCA, presented Mr Miliband with the YMCA Manifesto. Kate and Shey also had a brief chat with Mr Miliband, during which he congratulated Lincolnshire YMCA for its hard work and welcoming him to Lincoln.
