Rachel Maclean, MP for Redditch County, supported The Big Draw – the world’s biggest celebration of drawing – at Redditch’s REDI Centre on Saturday (28 October).

The annual national festival takes place from October 1-31 and unites communities through the universal language of drawing. Since launching in 2000, the festival has taken place in over 25 countries on seven continents, and brought over four million people back to the drawing board, and on Saturday Rachel turned up at the event at the town’s REDI Centre.

Rachel said: “This is a brilliant centre doing so much for the local community, and I’m excited to hear about their plans for refurbishment to make it even better and brighter.

“It was great to chat to hardworking volunteers and leaders, whose commitment and dedication I really admire, and to see them promoting a great cause like The Big Draw.”
