HAMPSHIRE actress Sarah Parish swapped her role in a BBC drama to take a day out to visit Paultons Park to recruit families for a charity walk.

Sarah, who is currently starring in BBC1’s Atlantis, took time out of her schedule to go to the family theme park for the walk, which is in aid of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Southampton General Hospital.

As patron of the ‘Friends of PICU’ charity, her visit saw her hand out leaflets and meet guests to promote the walk, which will take place at Southampton Common on September 7.
