Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A Somerset woman is getting her "tits out" to raise money for a multiple sclerosis (MS) charity.

"Vix", who suffers from the illness, decided to go topless after earning a tenner for flashing her breasts in a local pub.

Now, she's set up a Web site called Tits Out For Multiple Sclerosis in a bid to "raise awareness of this illness…and have a little fun in doing so". The site also details her own frank account of her fight against the disease.

She's also hoping that people will donate cash to her charity - the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre (MSRC).

When Ananova covered the story earlier today Vix had raised £35 for her efforts. At the time of writing the total had doubled to £70.

Helen Yates, managing executive at Colchester-based MSRC, told The Register that the topless site was "one of the most unusual fundraising" schemes the charity had come across so far.

But she welcomed it wholeheartedly explaining: "This is a woman who epitomises a 'can-do' approach. She's proving a point, proving that people with MS can get on with their lives." ®
