Comedian and biker Ross Noble featured in a heart-warming documentary about his motorcycling mission to support health workers in Zambia - The Supporters Club: Ross Noble Riding to the Rescue on BT Sport earlier this week. Now they've made the whole programmeavailable to watch for free on their website.
The documentary features Riders for Health, the latest charity to receive money raised by The Supporters Club. This is BT Sport’s charitable initiative set up to help create better futures for young people facing incredibly tough challenges.
Riders for Health provide motorbikes for health workers in Zambia, reducing time it takes them to reach families and children. For the next two years, money raised by The Supporters Club will help bring life-saving healthcare services to 190,000 extra people living in some of Zambia’s most isolated communities.
In the documentary, Ross rides through the Zambian bush for three days to deliver a new bike. Ross approaches the mission with the wit and humour that he has become so well-known for; however, his serious commitment and passion for the cause is clear as he meets families living in poverty while riding alongside health-worker Tambo Banda.
The documentary sees Ross delivering a new bike to Tambo, which means Tambo can reach more people, more often, when providing resources such as HIV tests for new-born babies and treatment to purify dirty water. Almost one in ten of Zambia’s children will not live to see their fifth birthday, but the majority of these deaths could be prevented. Too often these children just cannot be reached.
