Sherwood's MP Mark Sherwood captained the House of Commons team in the annual Commons vs Lords Tug of War match.
Mark Spencer, MP for Sherwood, captained the House of Commons team in the annual charity Commons vs Lords Tug of War match.
The event, which takes place every year in Westminster, sees teams from both the House of Commons and the House of Lords engage in a tug of war, to raise money for a charity, which this year was Macmillan Cancer Support.
Discussing the event, MP Mark Spencer said: "It was really good to captain the annual charity Commons vs Lords tug of war. Unfortunately, we had more team members than the Lords, so they were helped out by some ex-military guys. As such,
despite our valiant effort, we ended up coming second.
“It’s a really enjoyable event to take part in, but even more importantly, it’s raised money for Macmillan Cancer Research, which is a hugely important and worthy cause, and something I’m very proud to be able to support in this way.”
The MP has become well known for taking part in physical activities for charity, ranging from sponsored bike rides and charity football matches to village tugs of war.
