I am trying to help the homeless get a roof by cycling up one of Europe's most challenging peaks.

Originally, I was going to take part in the 140km La Mont Blanc challenge in July, but due to an injury to one of the boxers travelling with my party, I will now be taking on the Pico de Veleta in Siera Nevada, Spain on August 20th.

All the money raised on this page will go to the Manchester-based charity Barnabus.

Founded 23 years ago, Barnabus supports the homeless through its outreach, drop-in and collaborative projects.

The charity is able to help between 500 and 600 vulnerable people each week, but due to a sharp rise in demand, it now needs to raise £150,000 in order to extend its premises and improve its medical facilities."

Often, when I'm out in Manchester, I see people sleeping rough and it's really upsetting.

 

Barnabus is a charity close to my heart, I'm patron now and I'm keen to do all I can to help them.

 

The work they do is incredible, but there's always that little bit more that can be done and I hope everyone digs deep to support me on this cycle ride so they can get the extension they deserve.

 

I will be joined by Hatton Promotions' head of boxing Richard Poxon and unbeaten Sheffield prospects Adam Etches and Scott Jenkins, who are all raising funds for the teenage unit at Weston Park Cancer Hospital.

Don't know you personally Ricky but from what I've seen on TV, you're either a top bloke or a bloody good actor, and nobody's that good an actor. You'll always be loved by the public :o)
