Prime Minister’s wife Samantha Cameron returned to the campaign trail today saying it was “great to be in Yorkshire”.

Mrs Cameron was greeted by glorious sunshine as she arrived at the Growing Zone project, where she helped out with some painting.

The Growing Zone is an allotment garden project for adults and children with special needs in Kippax, Leeds.

She was introduced to various activities by June Perkin, who founded the scheme seven years ago after getting disillusioned by aimless families and youngsters she watched in a Leeds shopping centre one afternoon.

Mrs Cameron was even persuaded to help paint a wooden plant stand, which is being reconditioned and brought back into use by the volunteers and children.

“It’s great to be in Yorkshire,” she said. “The best thing about a campaign is getting out and about - meeting amazing people like June.

“The Growing Zone is an inspiration. It’s been lovely meeting everybody here today and seeing what an amazing job they do changing the lives of so many people with disabilities.”
