Chocoholics ‘go without’ to raise money for Leukaemia Research
TV builder helps Wickes launch fundraising campaign
TV presenter and builder, Tommy Walsh is supporting Wickes staff in their "Go Without to Give Life" fundraising campaign in aid of Leukaemia Research.

Many staff members have chosen to 'go without' chocolate as this proved the most popular vice among colleagues.

The campaign launch took place at Wickes' Tottenham store, where Walsh, joined by cashier Christina Davis, aged 19, kicked off proceedings.

Wickes stores nationwide are taking part in the Go Without To Give Life campaign.

Since forming its partnership with Leukaemia Research, Wickes has held a number of successful fundraising events, including a charity dinner at the new Wembley Stadium, which raised more than £95,000.
