EASTENDERS actor Bobby Davro is to host an Apprentice-style challenge in High Wycombe this week to help raise money for a hospice charity.

The former Dancing on Ice star will be at the High Wycombe branch of the Helen & Douglas House to raise awareness of the charity as two teams battle it out to collect the most money.

ClearAccount, a financial services business based in High Wycombe, will also be taking over the Chesham branch of Helen & Douglas House and putting the skills they use on a day-to-day basis to the test to run a charity shop for the day.

Each event will feature children-friendly activities such as face-painting and balloon modelling, while there will also be a raffle and the chance to have your photo taken.

Mr Davro will be signing photos at the High Wycombe store, in High Street, from 12-2pm during the challenge, which takes place on Thursday, February 13. The Chesham branch is in The Broadway.

Helen & Douglas provides care to children and young adults with life-shortening conditions and support their families, with more than 250 people currently in their care.
