Charity Donations

Jason disagreed with the MPs’ 10% pay rise in 2015. Because of this he continues to donate monthly to local, regional and national charities/good causes. A record of the main donations is below.

January 2017 – Main Donation to Anthony Nolan

Jason recently hosted the 4th Annual Anthony Nolan Supporters Awards at the House of Commons to celebrate the achievements of their dedicated supporters and to thank them for their hard work for such a brilliant cause.

Anthony Nolan matches incredible individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people who desperately need lifesaving transplants. They also educate young people about the lifesaving difference they can make by joining their register. Further to this they also conduct research to improve success rates of transplants as well as being there to support people with blood cancer and their families.

Hade Edge J&I School based in West Yorkshire are ever expanding from the current 97 pupils and desperately need a new hall.
