MP lends hand to help needy

Have your say

A SOUTH Yorkshire MP gave up his spare time to serve breakfast to disadvantaged members of the community.

Denis MacShane dropped into the Shiloh centre, on Westgate, Rotherham.

Mr MacShane, Labour MP for Rotherham, said: “This is one of the most important voluntary-run services out of the many terrific voluntary outfits we have here in Rotherham.

“The atmosphere is so good – warm, compassionate, and a real reach-out to people who often do not have enough money for a hot meal.”

Shiloh extends a helping hand to Rotherham adults facing poverty, homelessness, coming out of prison or drug dependency.

Clients are provided with breakfast and lunch, and can access shower rooms and spare clothing.

Mr MacShane added: “The most impressive aspect of Shiloh is that they raise the money for their charity work themselves.”
