Gosport MP completes charity challenge

Gosport MP, Caroline Dinenage, has this week finished her ‘10 for 10 challenge’ to raise awareness of Gosport Voluntary Action Group, who provide a range of support and care for the local community.

Caroline and her team have been walking 10,000 steps over 10 different days inspired by Guy Opperman, who is currently the Member of Parliament for Hexham alongside other roles across Westminster. 10 years ago in March 2011, Guy Opperman was rushed to St Thomas Hospital and diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Since, he has launched this ’10 for 10’ challenge to encourage people to raise money for local and national charities; perhaps more important on its tenth anniversary as Britain unlocks from the Covid-19 Pandemic. Caroline’s walking activities covered large areas of the Gosport Constituency alongside members of her team, including Alver Valley Country Park and Hillhead.

And it is GVA who will benefit from the work of their local MP, having started to return to normal with volunteers thriving behind the scenes and more projects lined up for the remainder of 2021. Their charity website is www.gva.org.uk if readers require any help or advice.

Caroline commented:

“GVA are a brilliant local cause who support people young and old across the Gosport Constituency and it has been great to be out and about the Gosport Constituency to raise awareness of the charity.
