A BUDDY scheme for people with bleeding disorders saw children’s TV presenters take over Parliament.
And they were joined by Colne Valley MP Jason McCartney and 15-year-old Josh Goldspink and his mum Valerie, of Linthwaite.
The MP met Josh at the launch of the Haemophilia Society’s Buddy Award scheme yesterday.
The annual awards have been created to recognise the vital support provided by the families, carers, friends and teachers of children with bleeding disorders.
Josh, a pupil at Colne Valley High School, has been affected by the bleeding disorder haemophilia since birth.
He went to the House of Commons where TV presenters Dick and Dom raised more awareness of the condition.
Jason said: “It was great to meet a brave young man like Josh who is getting on with his life despite his condition.
“I’m already supporting the Haemophilia Society with my work on behalf of the victims of the tainted blood scandal, but the day was all about recognising the young people affected by bleeding disorders.”
