Extract from sankes and ladders game
Snakes and Ladders - Climbing out of Poverty A snakes and ladders game has been developed to highlight the pitfalls and the support that can affect the level of poverty experienced by local people. A launch event of the game took place on 20 April at Shirebrook Market, and Dennis Skinner MP and Natascha Engle MP were first up to play. Here is a short video of both MPs playing the game.
