Pop music mogul Pete Waterman and MP for Boston and Skegness Mark Simmonds have teamed up, urging people to make a difference in their local community.
The unlikely pairing have both leant their support to CSV Make a Difference Day - a nationwide day of volunteering on Saturday, October 27.
Waterman, who was the producer behind 22 UK number one singles, has given MPs across the nation a ‘pledge kit’ featuring ideas for how people can share their skills with the community for its benefit.
He said: “I am encouraging MPs and people of all ages to take part in CSV Make a DIfference Day to share their career skills and personal hobbies, as well as making local communities thriving and happy places.”
The campaign aims to demonstrate how giving time through volunteering with friends, family and neighbours and being an active member of the community can help local clubs, groups and charities survive during difficult economic times.
Other public figures supporting the campaign include Esther Rantzen and Jon Snow.
