Maldon: Charity champion recognised for fundraising efforts
A charity champion has been recognised for his efforts in raising thousands of pounds for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
James Degiorgio, 34, store manager of Wickes in Maldon, has helped raise £80,000 in the last two years for the cancer charity.
As a charity champion for 14 Wickes stores across East Anglia, Mr Degiorgio has organised multiple fundraising events, including mountain climbs, Alaskan treks, barbecues and even a national rowathon.
Now Mr Degiorgio, of The Stiles, Heybridge Basin, has been selected as a “Give More Star” by charity campaign Give More.
He said: “Raising money for charity is the favourite part of my job."
