"My charities will be Air Ambulance and Citizens Advice. Two organisations which are essential to the wellbeing of us all and are heavily reliant on public contributions.  I also hope to raise a little money for Parkinson's, a charity very close to my heart as my family has suffered from Parkinson's over generations."
