Paul Blomfield MP

Paul was elected as the new MP for Sheffield Central in May 2010 and has lived in Sheffield since his family moved here when he was 9. Before becoming an MP he spent most of his working life at Sheffield University, where he was most recently General Manager of the Students’ Union.  In Parliament he is the Parliamentary Private Secretary to Hilary Benn and sits on the Business, Skills and Innovation Select Committee. He is also the Secretary of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Universities, Vice Chair of the All Party Group on Motor Neurone Disease. Paul is married and has one son.

Paul has been a patron of Cavendish Cancer Care for over 2 years and is always really happy to help our charity. Paul knows that Cavendish Cancer Care makes a difference to the lives of so many local families who are living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis. In April, he hosted a Cake Break at the Harland Café to help support our work!
