Politics may appear to stop over the Summer, in Westminster at least, but for our MPs and Peers there are still plenty of opportunities to keep busy. Baroness Sal Brinton, our LDCF President, took time out to speak at New Wine this year about the need as Christians to support our influencers. In response to her talk can we ask that you take time this Summer to write an encouragement to your local councillor or MP, they need it!
Have a wonderful Summer!
We're very pleased to announce that LDCF has a new Director - Karen Klair. Karen comes to us from the Christian voluntary sector and prior to that she worked as a Fund Manager in the City. After a lifetime interest in politics she has finally nailed her colours to the mast and recently joined the party. She is looking forward to her first ever party conference in Brighton and in meeting as many members of LDCF as possible.
