Two men are cycling more than 300 miles to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Dave Kerridge (43), from Wisbech, and Kev Welbourn (53), from Newton, are getting on their bikes and cycling from London to Paris, a journey of approximately 312 miles.

Their mammoth bike ride starts on June 5 and they have been busy training and raising money for the charity.

They have smashed their original target at £3,000 and now have around £7,000. They now have their sights set on the fantastic figure of £10,000 and are hoping the people of Fenland will help them get there.

Kev, who is an engineer at Princes Foods, said: “The response has been amazing. It would be amazing to treble our original target, that would be unbelievable. Who knows – we could even get to £10,000. That would be an amazing amount of money to give to charity.”

The pair decided to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer after watching close friends and neighbours fight the disease.

Kev and Dave, who is self-employed, will be cycling for four days in total. It will certainly be a challenge for the pair, who were not keen cyclists before attempting this fundraiser.
