More than 80 cyclists arrived at a Wraxall children’s charity after completing a 205-mile ride in aid of the cause.
The cyclists started at Children’s Hospice South West’s (CHSW) base in St Austell on July 6 before journeying to Little Bridge House in Devon and on to Charlton Farm in Wraxall on July 8.
It is the 10th year of the challenge and organisers are hoping to raise more than £85,000 from the event, which was sponsored by Edwards, from Clevedon, and Hubbox.
Neil and his wife Helen took part in the ride.
They said: “The hospice has been such an important place for us and continues to support us now.
“It was there for us and our son Thomas after his diagnosis with mitochondrial disease and looked after us during our weekend stays, during Tom’s final hours and throughout the painful days that followed.”
The money raised will help the hospices to continue supporting children with life-limiting conditions.
