Actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman are attempting to raise money for Riders for Health this week, by auctioning the chance to join them for the final two days of a ride through Africa to Cape Agulhas.

BMW will provide two bikes for the highest bidders, who will fly to Cape Town to join up with McGregor and Boorman for the closing part of their Long Way Down documented journey. The auction itself will be held at Riders for Healths signature event, Day of Champions at Donington Park this Thursday.

Riders for Health Chief Executive Andrea Coleman praised the auction, which will donate proceeds only to the official MotoGP charity.

This is a completely unique opportunity to become involved in something that simply cannot be repeated. We are hoping for some pretty hefty bids and all the money will go towards supporting motorcycling health workers, who take vital care to rural communities, in Africa.

For more information on the event and to find out how to bid for the experience, more information is available at www.riders.org.
