TELEVISION personalities are set to visit a Staffordshire Moorlands town to help raise cash for charity.

Former Coronation Street star Denise Welch is just one of the celebrities that local businessman Steve Lanza has enlisted for a fund-raising event in Leek next Thursday (November 28).

Other celebrities include actress Partricia Penrose of Heartbeat and Coronation Street fame.

Steve said: "This is a charity event called Christmas with Denise Welch and friends, that will hopefully be an annual thing every year.

"The public will be able to have their pictures taken with the celebrities and the photographs can be signed as soon as they are printed on the evening for just £5 and all the money will go to the GEM appeal."

Founded in 1994 and with primary goal of ‘funding research, finding cures’ the GEM Appeal charity works hard to fund research development to treat rare genetic diseases in children.

The celebrities visiting Leek will be in a marquee, provided by the Leek Rotary Club, outside Mosaic in Sheepmarket, Leek from 7pm on Thursday, November 28.
