It’s strictly St Neots for Help for Heroes
Would you Adam and Eve it? A slice of the East End is coming to St Neots as Eastenders and Strictly Come Dancing star Ricky Groves pops into town to raise money for a good cause.
FORMER EastEnders and Strictly Come Dancing star, Ricky Groves, will be hosting a Help for Heroes charity event in St Neots next month.
Mr Groves, who played mechanic Garry Hobbs in the BBC1 soap, is joining forces with Dick Thomas, of Buckden Private Hire, for an evening of entertainment and fundraising at the town’s RAFA club.
The evening, on April 30, will include entertainment, an air cadet display, Buckden’s Stageworks performing songs from the musicals, and an auction.
Mr Thomas told The Hunts Post: “It’s a secret auction so people can send their bids in privately to the RAFA club, stating the item they want to bid for and their bid.”

“I think we’re going to be in for a good night if everyone digs deep for the auction and raffle,” he added.
