STAFF from housing association Alliance Homes have taken part in a cycle ride from Portishead to Paris.
The 11 cyclists, including Martin Webb and Ian Carpenter from Weston, aimed to raise £5,000 for Alliance Homes’ charitable fund, which provides goods such as kettles or blankets to people in need.
The fund also helps people with energy costs and obtaining birth certificates.
Alliance Homes’ Mike Nicholls said: “The fund means our employees are able to provide those in urgent need with up to £75 worth of essential goods and equipment, without which many people in the local community would find themselves in a much harder position.”
