Bosses from a Congresbury hotel and spa raised more than £18,000 for a cancer charity by completing a London to Paris bike ride.

Jason Eaton and Nick Taplin, from DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House, completed the 320-mile challenge in aid of Cure Leukaemia.

The cycle began in Greenwich Park on May 19 and took Jason and Nick through the Kent countryside, before they took the EuroTunnel to France. They then passed through the Pas de Calais and Somme regions of northern France, before finishing at the Eiffel Tower.

Jason said: “It was an amazing experience. The set-off from Greenwich with hundreds of other cyclists was a sight to behold.

“The hardest section was from London to Folkestone but once we arrived in France the cycling levelled out a bit more.

“The ride into Paris was also an unforgettable experience although it was a little damp.

“We’d like to thank everyone who has so far donated but really want to hit the £20,000 mark.”
