Alan Campbell MP today joined Mary Glindon MP and North East Soroptimists at No 10 Downing Street where they presented their Global Blanket on Anti-Slavery Day.

The Global Blanket campaign, organised by Stop the Traffik, and supported by local Soroptimists, aims to draw awareness of the trafficking of women and girls in making clothes for the fashion industry.

Alan Campbell MP said "I was pleased to support North East Soroptimists and particularly Shirley Hallam in raising awareness of this issue.  The trafficking of women and girls in industries such as fashion is rising alarmingly and it is vital that consumers know whether their clothes are connected to modern slavery, child labour and exploitation."

Local MP Alan Campbell recently opened an event to mark World Mental Health Day at the Crescent Club in Cullercoats.

The theme of this year’s event was Survive, Thrive, Be Alive.

Alan Campbell said "It is easy to think that mental health issues don’t concern us but in fact research shows that a quarter of us will have problems with mental health issues at some time in our lives.

Mental health is one of the biggest challenges we face and there needs to be a concerted focus on improving treatment, support and awareness of mental health, both in our local area and across the country.  Events like this are invaluable at raising awareness and challenging the stigma of mental health issues and I want to thank everyone involved in the event."
