Mark is taught how to cross stitch by Mr X

Mark recently met with Cross stitcher, Jamie "Mr X Stitch" Chalmers to be taught how to cross stitch.

Jamie is also working with some of the members from MK Women and Work have and the group had been taking part in an international project by Save the Children's called "#imapiece" which Mark was interested to hear about.

The group had currently made 380 pieces of their puzzle which they hope will keep growing. The project is trying to gain support for a ringfencing of the amount of oversea aid which is currently granted.

Mark said, "I really enjoyed learning to cross stitch and it's great to see people learning a new skill. The #imapiece campaign carries a really important message and I know the government are committed to helping those most in need abroad."
