Lynne Featherstone MP celebrates World School Milk Day

Lynne Featherstone, MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, last week visited a local playgroup as part of World School Milk Day.

The Liberal Democrat MP spoke to children at the Salvation Army playgroup in Wood Green about the benefits of milk, and where it comes from. To mark the occasion, the MP and the children raised and enjoyed a glass of milk each!

The day is organised by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations and is celebrated in over 30 countries around the world. Cool Milk, one of the UK’s leading school milk suppliers, promotes and funds the day in the UK.

After the event, Lynne Featherstone commented:

“I was delighted to get involved in World School Milk Day, and to visit one of the playgroups in my constituency.

“It’s great that 1.5 million children in the UK already receive free milk every day – but it would be better if the figure was higher. I wish Cool Milk all the best for their future events and campaigns.”
