It was so nice to be at Smallwood Primary School to learn about the fantastic work of the Chefs In Schools. It's amazing that all catering is now in-house, with chefs cooking food that has been grown by the students themselves.
The children were so enthusiastic about their freshly cooked and nutritious lunches. I believe that the work we’re doing with Chefs in Schools will go a long way to promote positive attitudes and relationships with food and mealtimes for our young people. It was great to be able to support!
I arrived back home safely from Ukraine yesterday. I went on a humanitarian mission with MedGlobalOrg, who are helping support hospitals to prepare for the darkest days of this conflict.
We worked with the most amazing people and met patients with the most heart-breaking stories. I was honoured to be able to help Ukrainian victims in the midst of the heart breaking turmoil they are experiencing.
Let’s do all that we can to help support Ukraine.
This week, we celebrated our fantastic women business owners in Tooting. Over the last two years, many women have felt a disproportionate economic hit. Women hold the key to supercharging our economy as we recover from the pandemic.
Today I was delighted to welcome Anneliese Dodds MP to Tooting and meet with women business owners. I believe it is essential that we recognise the significant contribution women make and commit to tackling the challenges that they still face today.
Also, we welcomed some of our community's many impressive business women and community leaders to Parliament. Tooting is home to so many - it's only right we back women in business.
Lastly, a big thank you to Sir Keir Starmer MP for hosting.
