Tom Runs Westminster Mile

June 12, 2006 12:37 PM

Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton and Wallington, participated in the Sport Relief Westminster mile on 7th June, which took place to raise funds for people leading vulnerable lives here at home in the UK and in the poorest countries in the world.

The run was meant to encourage people to "Go the Extra Mile" for Sports Relief on Saturday 15th July. Mr Brake was given a Sports Relief T-Shirt and a red 'Doing It' sock to wear during the run. After completing the mile Mr. Brake was given the other sock so that he could proudly wear the pair during Sports Relief Saturday.

Mr. Brake came in 3rd place out of roughly 100 people running, and commented, "I hope that by running in the mile I can encourage my constituents to take part in Sports Relief Saturday to help raise awareness and money for this great cause".

    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.
