Last Sunday, Jimmy Carr became the first celebrity to take the Walk of Wealth. He was pitting his wits against the charity hating Banker for Helen & Douglas House.
Jimmy was joined by 22 comics to open the boxes. The Banker couldn’t stop Jimmy who went all the way, in an attempt to bag £35K for the children and young adults’ hospice. Heartbreakingly, Jimmy only had £750 inside his box 22.

Lin Beekar from the charity told us, “We were thrilled that Jimmy played in aid of Helen & Douglas House. Jimmy is a long term supporter of the charity and he has visited both hospice houses several times on private visits, to meet the children, young adults and their families. He spends time with them, chatting and being naturally funny and is a real ‘tonic’ for them and the staff and volunteers.”
As a result of Jimmy appearing on Celebrity Deal or No Deal and talking about the hospice, they have had donations from viewers of around £7,000 so far.
We’d like to thank all our generous fans who have donated to Jimmy’s charity so far.
