An actor is heading up north to compete in a gruelling cross country race to raise money for charity.

Ian Mairs is set to take part in ‘Trailtrekker’, a 62 mile journey through the Yorkshire Dales in June.

The Bethnal Green resident said he hopes to complete the trek in less than 24 hours as he raises cash for aid charity Oxfam.

“The entrance fees have already been paid for, so all donations, no matter how small (or large!) will go straight to Oxfam, and will be much appreciated”, he said.
