Supporting charities is something that many people do, and even a number of A-List celebrities take time out of their busy schedules to do their bit for a charity that is close to their heart. Peter Andre is the latest celebrity to undertake a challenge after recently completing an arduous bike ride in Zanzibar.
Andre was speaking in this weeks edition of New Magazine about his charity bike ride. He said, “The other day, we did 89km in the sweltering heat. What a killer! I never thought I’d be saying this, but my backside has taken a serious pounding and my legs are completely demolished! But, somehow, you just push through and if this trip has taught me one thing, it’s the incredible things your body is capable of doing.”
Andre was riding for the Health Improvement Project Zanzibar (HIPZ), a charity that his girlfriend Emily MacDonagh is particularly close to, and he hopes that hospitals in the area can be brought up to the “same standard” as the one he visited on his recent trip. He said, “We visited a hospital which has been completely transformed by money raised by HIPZ, and it’s been so inspiring to see. I’m now hoping that the cash raised from this charity ride will be able to bring another hospital up to the same standard. Thank you again to everyone who’s sponsored me and my poor, aching limbs.”
It is good to see people like Peter Andre supporting such a good cause. As for his sore backside and aching limbs they will recover in time, though there are probably women all over the world wishing they could help him through the pain barrier right now. Perhaps a quick massage from each one and a donation to HIPZ is in order!
