Charity fundraisers make it from London to Paris the hard way

Congratulations to a group from Croydon who ran, kayaked and cycled from London to Paris, all in aid of Help for Heroes.

Martin Dilworth, 47, led a team of five in the unique charity challenge which took six days to complete.

The first three days were spent running from the Tower of London to Dover, nearly 80 miles. Day 4 saw them paddling across the English Channel in kayaks. Once in France, they got on to their bikes for the 220-mile ride to Paris.

Dilworth, an ex-serviceman, was joined by Nigel Hodge, 35 and Stace Fencott, both from Croydon, David Sullivan from Oxted and Penny Ashby, 33, from Pevensey.
