Colne Valley MP Thelma Walker has been named Campaigner of the Week for the second time in as many months by Parliament’s in-house magazine, The House.

The November 13 issue commended her ongoing fight to do away with VAT on community-bought defibrillators.

Mrs Walker first beat 649 members of parliament to the award for her #Thelma100days campaign on social media, which shared the experiences of a new member of parliament.

She said “I am surprised and humbled to have been picked for a second time around so soon for Campaigner of the Week.

“When I was elected to Parliament, I said I would campaign on the issues that impact our local communities and I have been doing that.”
