Simon Clarke MP

Middlesbrough South & East Cleveland

I have known Dave and his team at "Imagine You Can" since shortly after my election in 2017. Dave approached me to support his programme by attending open sessions to answer questions about my role as an MP. The sessions are always structured and well organised as well as, I must admit, challenging and honest! Dave and his team have also managed to provide me with two of the most memorable moments in my short time as an MP. The first was completely unscripted when I was approached in the High street by a few students who I'd seen earlier that day. They were looking for a photo with their MP "Dabbing" with them so they could show their friends who hadn't attended the programme. The second was getting to meet a young lady by the name of Madison who not only impressed me on the day but went on to hqst the awards night that I was invited to take part in and then to narrate "The Mighty Redcar" which was a national documentary about one of our local towns.I would have no hesitation in supporting Dave in any of his future projects and am already looking forward to meeting a whole host of new attendees on next Summer's programme.
