I am so pleased to announce that I?raised a total of ?4,500 for?Sutton Mental Health Foundation?(SMHF),?a?local charity,?over the last two years.

A big 'thank you' to everyone who contributed to the fundraising drive.

I'd like to give a particular mention to the local Ahmadiyya Muslim community and the Charity Walk for Peace organisation which?generously donated ?1,000.

It is always a pleasure to recognise local charities that work hard to better our community, and SMHF is no exception.

For over 30 years, they have supported people struggling with their mental health, so I hope this ?4,500 went some way towards helping them do just that.

Now I'm looking for a new?local?charity to fundraise for over the next year -- that's why I'm asking local residents like you, John, to nominate one:


So please help me to choose my charity.?Just remember, it has to be a smaller charity that operates in the local area.

Best wishes,

Tom Brake MP
Lib Dem MP for Carshalton & Wallington
