That’s why I’m calling on everyone in the North East to join me in the fight against heart disease by signing up to the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) DECHOX campaign.
By challenging yourself to give up chocolate for the month of March and asking for sponsorship, you will help fund £1million of life-saving research that will make a difference to millions of lives.
For a self-confessed chocoholics, like me, it won’t be easy, but every pound raised will be crucial in helping fund the cutting-edge breakthroughs for those fighting a daily battle with heart disease.
Last year more than 19,000 people took part in DECHOX and raised an astonishing £800,000. This year I am helping BHF raise even more.
