Leaping into the New Year

In a demonstration of his steadfast support for the UK's 2012 Olympic and Paralympic bid, Carshalton and Wallington MP Tom Brake was one of a number of Lords and MPs who registered their support for the bid by 'leaping' though EDF Energy's Leap Counter. He followed the example of thousands of members of the public across the country who have been keen to give their backing to the bid.

Tom Brake said: "Bringing the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to this country would not only be a tremendous boost for London but for the rest of the UK. I was only too happy to come and show my support for the bid and hope that the people of Carshalton and Wallington will get behind it as well."

EDF Energy was the first company to become a Premier Partner of the London 2012 bid and is committed to helping bring the Olympic games to London. The specially designed counter has been registering people's support for the bid since May when it was first unveiled and has already had an impressive 129,000 people leap through it.

To register your support for the bid, visit www.edfenergy.com and take advantage of the virtual leap counter on the site.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
