Game of Thrones and X-men stars to ride across Morocco on a trip 

Written by FDM

British actor and rapper Raleigh Ritchie and Nicholas Hoult are set to travel across Morocco on monkey bikes to raise money for charity.

British actor and R&B experimenter Raleigh Ritchie, best known by fans of « Game of Thrones » as Gray Worm, has announced on Twitter his intention to cross the Moroccan Sahara aboard a mini-motorcycle starting January 2018. A trip that he will not do alone, as he will be accompanied by several friends, including his « homie » Nicholas Hoult, best known for playing  Beast in the « X-Men » films.

The group of friends will depart from a secret location for the week-long trip on 31 December  (the team have dubbed themselves the Moroccan Rollaz). Their inspiration doesn’t merely lie  on the beautiful landscapes of Moroccan desert  but for a good cause.

Indeed, the trip will aim to support Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), a British association that fights against mental distress and men’s suicide. « Suicide is the leading cause of death among men under 45 in the UK, » said the actor in a statement.

A donation campaign has also been launched, and has so far collected £ 3,370  on the £ 10,000   (nearly MAD 130,000) .
