Wolves help kick off Red Nose Day Challenges
Helen Skelton kicks off seven magnificent challenges for Red Nose Day...
...And Warrington Wolves were on hand to support Helen ahead of challenge 1.
Helen’s Magnificent 7, launched live on Blue Peter, began at Twickenham on Saturday 2nd February when she took to the pitch at half time of the England vs Scotland Six Nations match to attempt a kick through the posts in front of 82,000 rugby fans.
She trained with a number of Wolves' stars including Richie Myler, Stefan Ratchford and Chris Riley and at The Halliwell Jones Stadium in the build up to the game along with Saracens and England rugby union player Charlie Hodgson.
Over the next six weeks she will appear on stage in the West End, take to the skies with the Red Arrows and attempt to set a world record – and that’s just for starters!
You can follow Helen’s progress on Blue Peter every Thursday at 5.45 on CBBC. For more information and ideas about your own challenges, visit www.rednoseday.com/challenge or to view the video of Helen training with the Wolves click here.
