Wallace & Gromit's Cracking Charity Partnership!

On Monday 28th January, Wallace and Gromit joined John Lewis staff in the cheese room at John Lewis Oxford Street Foodhall for a spot of cheese tasting.

The event was to mark the announcement of Wallace & Gromit's Children's Foundation as John Lewis Department Stores' 'Charity of the Year 2008'. Funds raised will go towards helping sick children being treated in hospitals and hospices across the UK.

Kate Green, Corporate Affairs Coordinator, John Lewis, said:
"Our employees around the UK are really enthused and looking forward to having lots of fun, fundraising for a national charity which directly benefits such an important cause.

"Today's cheese tasting is the first of many events planned over the next year and definitley not the last time we will see Wallace & Gromit helping out."
