Couple of months ago, I joined a very successful midnight walk around Powis Castle Park, arranged by the firefighters of Welshpool. There were around 400 of us, and I joined the Mayor, Cllr. Ann Holloway to start the event off. Bobbie and I walked - Ann sold raffle tickets. We were raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support. And we often open allow groups to visit our garden in the summer - with all proceeds going to the colostomy nurses in the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, in appreciation of their help when I had my own encounter with cancer in 2002. So I'm a keen raiser of money for cancer charities.
But compare my style of money raising with that of my political opponent, Lembit Opik, which was much featured in today's Daily Mail. Its as good a way of telling the difference between us as any. You pays your money and takes your choice.
