Gordon Brown came to Leeds on Thursday, and took the opportunity to speak to a large gathering of local supporters and community leaders.
Rachel organised a lunchtime event where the Prime Minister praised Yorkshire's Labour Party members for the campaign that was run against the BNP in Barnsley last week and took the opportunity to thank community leaders for their work in our area.
Gordon Brown emphasised the importance of fighting for Labour's core values of fairness and prosperity for all.
After speaking to the crowd, the Prime Minister chatted with parliamentary candidates and guests. Rachel said "It was a fantastic opportunity to introduce Gordon to people in Leeds West who are making a difference locally - including school governors, charity workers, community wardens and business people and so encouraging to hear the Prime Minister recognise the efforts that local people and party members are making."
