Campaigners were today holding an event at Sheffield University to highlight work to eradicate global poverty.

Christian Aid campaigners Laura Cooke and Amy Hall organised the session at the university, where organisations ONE and the Global Poverty Project were due to outline progress that has been made to help impoverished people around the world.

Alexander Woollcombe, spokesman for ONE, said: “We are in Sheffield to let people know the remarkable progress that has been made to end global poverty and to bring the message to Sheffield MP Nick Clegg who is in a prime position to make sure the government supports life-saving vaccines in June.

“It has always been local campaigners that ensure global poverty is in on the agenda of our government.”
