Last week Bassetlaw based charity Hope for the Homeless attended the award ceremony for the Paul Goggins Memorial Prize in the Speakers Rooms in the Houses of Parliament. The prize was awarded for the best civil society organisation to tackle poverty.
Hope, which provides a variety of services to the people most in need in our Bassetlaw community were runners up for the prize.
Representatives of the charity accepted their certificate from the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Poverty, Kate Green MP. The Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, was also present to acknowledge the work that they do.
John Mann said “I am extremely proud that Hope for the Homeless were runners up for the Paul Goggins Memorial Prize. Hope is dynamic organisation that provides a responsive service to those in greatest need in our community.”
“I was delighted to welcome them to Parliament and ensure that the vital work they do is recognised.”
