Carshalton's MP brakes the pain barrier for charity

Carshalton and Wallingon's MP Tom Brake is taking part in today's 30km Grim Duathlon at a Surrey Army site, complete with mud, water torrents and sand dunes.

Money raised will go to St Raphael's Hospice in Cheam. The Hospice offers special medical care to those facing life-threatening illness living in Sutton and Merton. The service provides high quality nursing skills as well as support to family and friends, completely free of charge. The hospice mainly relies on charitable donations from local individuals, groups and organisations.

Message from Tom.

I just wanted to say a big 'thank you' to everyone who has sponsored me and also to all the great local organisations like Sutton Runners who have helped me train, along with local tennis superstar Guiseppe Delgado and the staff of Pulse Fitness in Wallington.

We're now closing in on £1,500 raised and with a last push I'm sure we can make it.

GOOD LUCK TOM FROM EVERYONE ON JACKIE NEWS!

Spelthorne's MP in hot water
The MP for Spelthorne is facing fresh criticism after it emerged he pumped £100-thousand of taxpayers’ money into his own private company.

David Wilshire has agreed to an investigation by the parliamentary standards commissioner.

He contracted his own Moorlands Research Services firm, which he owns with his partner, to perform admin and research jobs for his Staines office.

Wilshire has previously come under fire from constituents over claims he made on his second home.

As a result, a so-called “Conservative Anti-Corruption Group” was formed by voters hoping to oust him at the next election.

Ready, Set . . . . Toddle!

Children at the Willows Nursery at Sutton Hospital, are hoping to raise over £300 after a ‘sponsored toddle’.

On 2 October, 35 children – from babies just able to take their first steps, to children aged four years old – took part in a challenge of their own making to raise money for the children’s charity Barnardos.

First, the children had to design the track by colouring in pictures of giant feet and laying them around the nursery. Then, once they were satisfied with their handiwork, they were under starters orders for the toddle to begin.
