Denton and Reddish MP, Andrew Gwynne, has challenged constituents to DECHOX, and give up chocolate this March, in order to help raise money for the British Heart Foundation and their life-saving heart research.
Last March more than 16,000 people took on the challenge to DECHOX, the British Heart Foundation’s nationwide sponsored challenge to have a detox from chocolate, and raised more than £1 million for life saving heart research. Any sort of cocoa is a no-no, which means chocolate bars, treats, biscuits, ice cream, cake – and even the chocolate sprinkles on your cappuccino – are off limits during March.
This year however you don’t have to go it alone; you could sign up as a team with family, friends or even colleagues to ensure none of you fall off the “Wagon Wheel”.
By taking part in DECHOX or sponsoring others to do so, you’re joining an amazing team all taking the fight to heart disease. Whether it’s funding vital life saving heart research to find cures, or helping provide our vital information for heart patients and their families, the money you raise will help make a big difference.

“I’m encouraging anyone who thinks they’ve got the willpower to sign up for this challenge to do so; and for those that can’t, I’d encourage you to donate anything you can to this worthwhile cause. It’s not all doom and gloom, yes DECHOX is all about taking a “Time Out” from chocolate, but it’s also your chance to enjoy other foods too!”
