DJ and television presenter Edith Bowman, model and designer Twiggy, and dancer Camilla Dallerup are backing a fundraising campaign encouraging Londoners to stay in.

The IN Thing is being run by Cancer Research UK, and aims to put a new slant on the message that charity begins at home.

The fundraising initiative is asking women to rally their girlfriends together for a fun night in and to donate the money they would have spent on a night out to the charity.

Bowman said: “Having lost a number of people very close to me to cancer I feel it’s incredibly important to support Cancer Research UK.

“The work they do is significant if we are to ever find a way of eradicating this horrendous disease.

“The IN Thing is the ultimate girls’ night in and a great way to beat the winter blues and bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

“I’m IN and I hope all the women in London will be too.”

Women are being asked to hold their events in November, after nights have drawn in and before the Christmas party season starts.

Lynn Daly, Cancer Research UK’s London spokesman, said: “Women love a night with the girls but sometimes need an excuse for a get-together. The IN Thing is the perfect reason to round up friends for a well-deserved fun night in and raise money for a great cause at the same time. Plus they can totally relax while they do it – no high heels or expensive bar bills to worry about.

“Fundraising can be as simple as getting together on a Saturday night to watch Strictly Come Dancing and if Len says ‘SEVEN!’ the guests donate £7 to Cancer Research UK.

“And while friends have fun painting their nails or catching up on the gossip, they’ll be helping us in the serious task of beating cancer sooner.”

The IN Thing party pack is available, which provides everything needed to plan the perfect night in, including party planning guides, recipes and playlists, top tips, and exclusive offers.
