Actor Ricky Groves – the man who played mechanic Garry Hobbs in Eastenders for nine years will be joining us at the launch party.
“I’m so excited to be a part of the challenge” says Ricky. “I’ve been supporting Action for 8 years years now, it’s a wonderful charity and I hope all the teams have an amazing adventure and raise lots of money!”
It’s fantastic that Ricky has agreed to come down and meet all the teams the night before, he’ll be hosting the evening’s entertainment and then sending us off in style the following morning.
You never know, he might even bring his tools for any last minute car repairs!
