YOUNG people of a particular age won’t remember Carl Fogarty for his superbike skills.

Instead, they associate his name and face with him being the king of the I’m a Celebrity jungle.

But either way, youngsters at Derian House Children’s Hospice will be delighted to see the star pay them a visit next month.

It will be a huge boost for the children, many of whom receive vital respite care at the hospice.

Mr Fogarty spent many years away from the media spotlight after his retirement.

But it’s fantastic to see the four-time World Superbike champion using the public attention to do some excellent work for an extremely worthy cause.

He and his friend, former British champion James Whitham, have committed to raising funds for the hospice courtesy of their theatre tour which has drummed up thousands over the past four years for other causes.

The hospice is an inspiring and phenomenal place. Visitors describe it as being like ‘home from home’.

But like most hospices, it only receives enough government funding to open for a few weeks per year.

The rest is made up of wonderful gestures like Carl’s.
