A team of cyclists from Northwich-based Roberts Bakery has completed the 320-mile journey from London to Paris and hopes to have exceeded their £9k target for the Prevent Breast Cancer charity.
The bakery team battled a four-day bike ride to reach their last stop at the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Donations are still flooding in and the riders are now hoping to raise £15k.
Lindsey Occleston, who was part of the cycling team, told local newspaper the Northwich Guardian: “I battled breast cancer, so I’m passionate about doing everything possible to revolutionise breast cancer screening and to save lives.
“The lives of every rider have been touched by some form of cancer at some time, and everyone felt this marathon effort was really helping to make a difference in preventing breast cancer for other women.
She added: “It was a phenomenal sporting challenge, and I am so delighted that we’ve exceeded our target and are now approaching £15,000.”
The Breast Cancer charity is a big part of the company after raising £25k in helping to fund ground-breaking gene research.
