‘Time to do your bit’ as Lisa Nandy pledges support for HM Armed Forces

Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Wigan has pledged to do her bit for Britain’s Armed Forces. Lisa Nandy visited the new home of the Wigan Borough Veteran Council (WBVC) in Platt Bridge and met with veteran leaders in the borough.

The Royal British Legion has called on parliamentary candidates to support improved conditions for the British Armed Forces past and present and their families.

Mel Lee of the Ashton branch of the Royal British Legion said, “I am delighted that Lisa has pledged to do her bit. This is a great way of showing her support for the whole Armed Forces family.”

“Both the serving and ex-Service community need the support of politicians and our manifesto outlines practical ways the next government can help, and we hope that, if elected, Lisa will give it serious consideration”.

Lisa Nandy said, “I was really pleased to get my pledge card from the Legion. I know the work they do for the whole Armed Forces family matters not just to me, but to so many local people as well. It’s so important we all get behind them and that’s why I had no hesitation in pledging to do my bit.”
