I refer the hon. Member to my answer to her of 10 September 2014, Official Report, Column 638W.

Figures are not centrally held on the number of participants, but I would observe that 144 separate events were recorded on the “A Year of Service” website, including Berkshire, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bradford, Bury, Cardiff, Colchester, Dublin, Feltham, Glasgow, Gravesend, Hertfordshire, Leeds, Leicester, London Luton, Maidenhead, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, Poole, Radlett, Scottish boarders, Sheffield, Slough, Southampton, St Albans, Taunton, Watford, Wessex and the West Midlands. Many more events took place locally around the country.
