Political rivals join forces for charity

Former MPs Lord Hattersley and Matthew Parris are taking part in an event to support a Peak District charity.

They will be ‘In Conversation’ at Thornbridge Hall, Ashford in the Water, on November 12, at 7.30pm.

The event will feature two sections where the audience will see each interview the other, and will even have the opportunity to ask their own questions.

Proceeds from the evening will go to Helen’s Trust, which enables terminally ill people to be cared for at home.

Tickets cost £15 from Helen’s Trust in Bakewell or visit www.helenstrust.org.uk/events/178
