On Sunday 16th October I will be doing my annual sponsored walk around the border of my constituency - a total of around 18 miles - in aid of the Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation .
Daniel was a young constituent of mine who tragically died after taking drugs at a rave. His parents, Tim and Fiona, established the Foundation to try to prevent other families from having to go through the pain of losing a child and to stop the damage done by drugs to young lives. I have the utmost respect for what Tim and Fiona have done and want to do my bit to support them.
If you'd like to sponsor me you can do so here or by sending a cheque to my office at 133 Wickham Road, Croydon CR0 8TE made payable to "Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation".
And if you are passionate about the charity or would just like to join us on the walk, get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
