A South Yorkshire actor will be getting on his bike to raise money for a national children’s charity.
Life on Mars star Dean Andrews will be joining hundreds of cyclists at The Wiggle Rut, a cycling event around Rutland in aid of Caudwell Children.
The Rotherham-born actor has been a partner of the charity for the past year, helping to fundraise to provide practical and emotional support to families living with disabled children.
And the keen sportsman is looking forward to the 100-mile challenge on October 25.
Dean, who played Det Ray Carling, said: “Cycling plays a huge part in my life. I love taking my bike out and experiencing the thrill of riding. Being able to do this in support of an amazing charity like Caudwell Children is a fantastic opportunity.
“The charity work hard to do amazing things for families in real need, so it’s a pleasure to work with them and do what I can to help young people living with disabilities.”
The event is part of a series organised by Kilo to Go and online retailer Wiggle.
