Warwick’s showing his support for Make-A-Wish by backing May’s Go Gold campaign.
“Make-A-Wish is a brilliant charity and I’m really excited to be involved with the Go Gold campaign,” he said. “Getting sponsored to wear gold or organizing a gold-themed event during May is a really simple way of supporting Make-A-Wish and something that the whole family can get involved with. I hope that everyone will join me in helping this fantastic charity.”
