Local MP Bill Wiggin is supporting the Send A Cow charity, who run sustainable agricultural programmes in Africa. After meeting Colwall resident and Send A Cow ambassador Jenny Houghton, Bill said:
“Even in these difficult economic times, it is important that we do what we can to help people in the developing world. The Send A Cow charity does tremendous work supporting farmers in rural parts of Africa to develop their own agricultural sector so that they can feed their families and communities.”
“The Conservative Party is committed to increasing expenditure on international development so that we can reach the UN target of spending 0.7% of national income on international aid by 2013.”
