In a statement on his website, Kay previously revealed money raised would go towards The Lily Foundation.
“The Lily Foundation is an inspiring charity that helps to improve the lives of children with Mitochondrial Disease,” he said.
“I’ve had first-hand experience of the Foundation’s work and I’m proud to raise both awareness and much needed funds to help with the inspiring work they provide to children and their families.”

The second series of BBC show Car Share ended on an emotional cliffhanger last year as John (Kay) failed to reciprocate the advances of his car share colleague Kayleigh (Sian Gibson).
And fans of the programme were dismayed when Kay announced that he had no plans to pen a further series.
But the comic later announced special episodes – a special finale to reveal what happens next for the pair and an entirely improvised episode, Car Share: Unscripted.
Both hotly-anticipated shows, Unscripted and the finale, were filmed last year.
