1980s pop stars Martin Fry from ABC and Richard Drunnie from Go West are teaming up to trek through Namibia next year for charity.

The hitmakers behind Poison Arrow, When Smokey Sings, and The King Of Wishful Thinking will spend 20 days walking across southwest Africa in March to raise money for Action Medical Research, a charity that aims to improve the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of childhood disease and disability by funding the highest quality research most likely to bring benefits to babies, children and their families.

“We’re going to be trekking for about two and a half weeks for this charity which develops a lot of inventions like photographic equipment and scientific developments that they use in hospitals particularly to help newborn babies,” said Fry. “There’s a bit of sponsorship money needed and I think there are plans to do a small documentary.”

“It’s going to be an adventure,” he added. “It’s a great way to see that part of the world because, if you went on your own or with a couple of mates, you wouldn’t know where to go. It’s a group of 30 people, so it’s a great way of doing it safely with doctors on hand to strap you up in the morning and get you going.”
