A WORLE trio decided to go on a health kick and get fitter, but also managed to raise hundreds of pounds for charity in the meantime.

Friends Richard Bull, Alan Parsloe and Sean Honeywell (pictured) are all in their mid-40s and decided it was time to get fitter, improve their health and lose some weight.

Sean’s father died of a heart attack so the three men were inspired to take on the British Heart Foundation 27-mile charity cycle ride in Glastonbury.

Sean said: “We wanted to get a bit fitter and lose a bit of weight so started cycling together, then we saw this event on Facebook and signed up.

“It was nice and sunny until we started the ride and then it was wind and rain the whole time we were on the push bikes

“But it was really enjoyable and there was a really good crowd.

“We would like to thank the people who sponsored us, work colleagues, friends and family and especially J&L Industrial Paint from Banwell who supplied us with T-shirts for the event.”

They managed to raise £300 for the charity.
