The Give It Up for St Giles campaign will give participants the chance to raise money while sticking to their plans for 2016.

The Whittington hospice, which provides free specialist care for those with serious illnesses and their families, wants people to get involved in different ways. They can gather sponsorship money for a month-long abstinence, or donate the cash that would have been spent on their guilty pleasure instead. There’s even the chance to donate through a ‘Willpower Tax’, for every time the temptation is too much.

St Giles has also teamed up with Phoenix Fit Camp to offer support and activities aimed at reducing sugar intake.

The fit camp’s boss Pete Woollard said: “People will be able to learn more about the effects sugar can have upon us, on our health, and how we will suffer if we do not do something about it.”

People can register to take part online.
