The Ashford star of the documentary Fixing Dad will be starting a season of fundraising for the Paula Carr Diabetes Trust when he takes part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 bike challenge on 31 July.

Before the ride Geoff Whitington will be talking on BBC TV with sons Anthony and Ian about the Fixing Dad film, which charts the family’s amazing journey to help their dad change from 20-stone Type 2 diabetes patient to lean and mean endurance cyclist.

The film, which was produced by the Whitington brothers with substantial financial support from the Paula Carr Diabetes Trust, will be screened on BBC2 this Sunday 24 July at 22.00.

Geoff said: “This is only the start of the fundraising we’re aiming to do for the Paula Carr Diabetes Trust. Without their help the film wouldn’t have been possible. We owe them big time for what they’ve helped us achieve.”
