Broxtowe MP, Anna Soubry, welcomed Women’s Minister, Nicky Morgan, to Midlands Women’s Aid. Nicky spent time with Cathy Saunders, who leads the local women’s refuge, which runs a seven family unit in Broxtowe.
Speaking of the visit, Nicky said, “I would like to thank Anna for arranging the visit to Midlands Woman’s Aid. It was fantastic to hear about the inspirational work they are doing. It was great to meet the staff and moving to hear from some of the women staying there.”
Anna added, “It was a pleasure to introduce Nicky to Midlands Women’s Aid and I was very impressed with the way that she listened to them as they explained their work and funding needs. Nicky clearly has a knowledge of the great work done by women’s refuges. It is so important to have a Women’s Minister who is grounded and understands why it is so important to continue to support refuges.”
