Coronation Street star Michelle Collins backs spinathon for Highgate charity Alexandra Wylie Tower Foundation
TV soap star Michelle Collins wants residents to get on their bikes and ride for 24 hours to raise money for disadvantaged children.
The Coronation Street actress is challenging cyclists to keep pedalling for as long as they can in a 24-hour spinathon on static bicycles at the All About You fitness studio in Broadbent Close, Highgate, on March 1 and 2.
Residents can cycle as much or as little as they want, whether it is one hour or the full 24.
The fundraiser is in aid of Highgate charity the Alexandra Wylie Tower Foundation, set up three years ago in memory of Channing schoolgirl Allie, who died of cancer aged 17 in November 2010.
Ms Collins, one of the charity’s patrons, posed for a photo on Saturday to publicise the event, which will raise money for underprivileged youngsters.
