ENTREPRENEURS have been invited to share their business concerns with the man who hopes to become Burton’s next MP.

Jon Wheale, the Labour Party’s candidate for the town, has invited business bosses to a question and answer with himself and the shadow business minister Toby Perkins.

The pair will host the event at the National Brewery Centre, in Horninglow Street, from 5.45pm until 7pm on April 3.

The Labour candidate will then follow the session with a charity dinner from 7pm until 9pm to raise money for the End Hunger Campaign, which aims to tackle the rise in food poverty.

Mr Wheale said: “This event is a golden opportunity for the towns’ business leaders to share their concerns.

“Toby knows their fortunes are vitally important to the area’s prosperity and is keen to hear their views about how we can best help them achieve their goals.

“Business leaders in the area have asked me to arrange events like this and I hope they will now seize this opportunity to put their opinions across.”

Mr Wheale said his guest’s visit would be the latest in a series of commerce-themed events he planned to hold in the constituency over the coming months.

The event will also take place days after shadow minister for the cabinet office Michael Dugher is due to accompany Mr Wheale in a visit to Burton’s Salvation Army food bank in Mosley Street.

Entrepreneurs who want to attend should email Mr Wheale at jon.burtonlabour@gmail.com
