An adventurer and broadcaster met some of the children she will tackle part of the Tour de France for this summer.
Hannah White, 30, who presents Channel 5’s Go Hard of Go Home, will take on the gruelling L’Etape du Tour challenge on July 20 in the French Pyrenean mountain range to raise funds for children’s charity Action For Kids.
The charity helps support disabled children through providing mobility equipment, learning, training and support and Hannah’s challenge has even captured the imagination of Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
On Tuesday she went to meet some young people getting fit cycling in Finsbury Park ahead of her ride.
“It feels amazing meeting the young people I am raising money for,” said Hannah.
