Just got notice that two Corrie stars will be raising funds for ActionAid (a charitable organization who’s aim is to help end the cycle of poverty). Tupele Dorgu (Kelly Crabtree) will be (eek!) SKYDIVING to raise funds and Katy Cavanagh (Julie Carp) will be strapping on the shoes for a 5K run.
Here’s the info I got along with links to let you support their fundraising efforts.
Coronation Street stars Tupele Dorgu (Kelly Crabtree) and Katy Cavanagh (Julie Carp) will be putting their work in Underworld aside as they take on action challenges for charity ActionAid.
Tupele will be taking to the skies over Lancashire as she prepares for her first ever 10,000 ft skydive on Saturday 5th September and Katy will be putting on her running shoes in the 2009 Adidas Women’s 5K Challenge in London’s Hyde Park on Sunday 6th September.
Tupele is really looking forward to her freefall experience and is encouraging the people of Lancashire and Greater Manchester to join her for what promises to be an unforgettable day of fun and fundraising for ActionAid, a charity dedicated to fighting poverty across the globe.

Katy is very excited about the Addidas 5km Challenge,
“I’m really looking forward to taking part in the 5k women’s challenge for ActionAid especially as it’s in support of so many amazing and inspiring women across the world.”
It’s the biggest and best women-only fun run in the UK with thousands of women taking part every year. The run is open to women of all ages and whether they run or walk they’ll have an amazing experience as well as making a real difference to the lives of some of the poorest women and their families and communities around the world.
Katy is keen to encourage other women to take part in the 5k Women’s Challenge, it’s a great way of coming together with women and raising much needed money for ActionAid’s vital women’s rights work. For more information check out http://www.actionaid.org.uk/101641/adidas_womens_challenge.html
