LCID @ Labour Conference

19 September 2011

Conference

The Labour Campaign for International Development is off to Liverpool for Conference next week and we hope to see you at one of our events.

On Tuesday, we’re delighted to announce that the Co-operative Party are holding their Annual Conference Reception in association with LCID.  The event will be helping to raise funds in support of the Sewn Up campaign which is supporting a Women’s Co-operative in South Africa to buy new sewing machines, which they use to make clothes for the local community.

On Monday evening, we’ll be hosting our LCID Drinks. If you’re a LCID regular or first-timer come and join us at 9pm in the Staybridge Suites main bar.
