During our ‘Red October’ fundraising event we received a message from Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, showing his support for us in Bury St Edmunds. It read as follows:
‘My greetings and best wishes to Bury St Edmunds Labour.
We are a Party opposed to austerity and for redistribution of wealth. Nobody should be without shelter and care which is why we are demanding the building of more council homes, regulation of the private rented sector and a national care system that ensures care for those who need it. We challenge this government on their lack of care and denial of opportunities to so many of our young people. We are ready for an election whenever it comes…to win FOR THE MANY NOT THE FEW!
