On Friday night Rachel hosted the Labour Regional Quiz with Jamie Hanley, Labour's candidate for Pudsey at the general election, to raise campaigning funds for Leeds West and Pudsey Constituency Labour Parties. The Rt Hon Yvette Cooper attended as guest speaker and Daily Mirror journalist Paul Routledge acted as quizmaster.
Around 250 people attended The Loft in Leeds for the event, packing the venue to full capacity. All the money raised will go towards fighting Labour campaigns in Leeds West and Pudsey, with the vital local council elections only five months away.
Rachel said, "I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended this fantastic event and to Yvette Cooper for coming to speak, Paul Routledge for the quiz and Hilary Benn, who stepped in to draw the raffle. I'd also like to thank The Loft for their brilliant hospitality. I hope that everybody who attended had a great night"
