David Hasselhoff has showed off his generous side by making a massive donation to a children’s hospice service.
The former Baywatch star, who is now a judge on Britain’s Got Talent, was prompted to help the cause by the TV show’s warm-up comedian, who is planning a charity bike ride.

Hasselhoff was so impressed by funnyman Ian Royce’s dedication to raising cash for Shooting Star Chase – which supports the families of seriously ill children – that he made a donation.

He also agreed to sponsor Royce’s 55-mile fundraising race from London to Brighton, on the U.K.’s south coast, later this month.

Royce took to his blog on Twitter.com to tell fans, “David Hasselhoff has made a huge donation to my kids hospice and my bike ride for it! Go have a look and make a donation why your (sic) at it!!!… thank you David Hasselhoff for your amazing donation.”
