"I was really impressed by what I have seen and heard today. There is clearly a demand for the service in our area, and I really want to pay tribute the team at Beacon Counselling. The many volunteers quietly go about doing an incredible job and I am keen that their good work should not go unnoticed, "says Mark Hunter MP
