AN ADVENTUROUS group of teens from three North Somerset villages are hoping to raise £5,000 for charity.

Jack Hawes, from Churchill, Taylor Rampton, from Winscombe, and Cheddar resident, Steve Sayer, will cycle from London to Paris in July.

The villagers, aged 16-17, have set their sights on raising thousands of pounds for the Children’s Hospice South West.

Sidcot School sixth form student, Jack, said: “We’ve chosen to fund-raise for this great charity as we feel it provides excellent hospice care, while maintaining a happy and cheerful atmosphere for children who will never know what it is like to be an adult.”

The team are hoping for some big donations of £100 and as an acknowledgement they will wear company logos along with other sponsors on their tops.

A video of the trip will also be posted on YouTube. For more details visit their Twitter page @Threeguyscycle or to donate visit
