MPs given wake-up call

Last week, chief executive Naomi Ridley and her colleagues at Hastings Furniture Service went to Westminster to deliver a pillowcase to every MP, asking ‘How did you sleep last night?’, in an effort to raise awareness of the consequences of cutting Local Welfare Assistance. HOT’s Zelly Restorick asked Naomi to let us know what happened.

Here is a short HFS  video of their visit and some photos of two of the MPs who supported the campaign – and of the eye-catching campaign HFS staged to challenge  the government’s proposal.
