Tamzin Outhwaite makes today count for cancer charity

Cancer Research UK

Tamzin Outhwaite has lent her support to the Make Today Count campaign for Cancer Research UK. The campaign will run on 2008's extra day, 29th February. It asks for people to do whatever they can to raise money for charity on that extra leap year day.

Tamzin said: "It's so easy just to do one little thing for the Make Today Count campaign. I'm going to send a bunch of flowers to my mum, my aunt Sandra and nanny Lina who have all been affected by cancer. I'm using Cancer Research UK's Give With Flowers - so they'll be happy and I'll have raised money for Cancer Research UK's work at the same time. Doing something small to fundraise on 29th February will really help the charity to continue its vital research. Please do get involved - there are loads of ways that you can help raise money and you could end up having fun with friends and family at the same time."

Whether it's holding a fundraising dinner party, buying a pin badge from the shops, donating clothes, or giving flowers - we can all come together and make our extra day count. Visit Make Today Count to see how you can get involved.
