Beckenham MP Bob Stewart was joined by television presenter Christine Bleakley at the parliamentary Comic Relief launch on Sunday.

Sporting his red nose, Mr Stewart and MPs from all parties gathered in the Strangers Dining Room of the House of Commons to celebrate the success of Comic Relief since it began in 1985.

He said: “Beyond the obvious amusement in wearing a fantastic red nose, there is a serious point to this.

“Comic Relief does an enormous amount of good work in communities, including Beckenham. They identify vulnerable people and give them the support they require to lead fulfilling lives.

“I hope schools in Beckenham will play their part to raise as much money as possible by holding events. I wish Comic Relief 2013 every success.”
