Jo Cox MP has marked Children’s Hospice Week by nominating Kirklees’s own hospice as her charity of the month.
Mrs Cox, the MP for Batley & Spen, promotes a local charity every month and this month is promoting Forget Me Not.
The children’s hospice, which serves all of Kirklees, is based in Huddersfield and they have a charity shop in Heckmondwike.
Mrs Cox visited the hospice and made a donation. She said:
“It was a very moving visit. The good work they do here is incredibly important. They help so many children who are expected to have a short life, and their families and loved ones. It was an honour to learn more about their work and make a small donation to help that.”
