A Liverpool businessman has completed a four-day cycle ride from London to Paris, raising almost £2000 for R Charity.
Steve Hunt, managing director of mechanical and electrical engineering design consultant, Steven A Hunt & Associates, and his son Joe, cycled in excess of 70 miles a day to reach the French capital on schedule.
They exceeded their initial fundraising target of £1,500, to raise £1,900 on the fourth and final day.
The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust’s R Charity is raising funds to provide the latest high-technology equipment for diagnoses and treatments in the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
Steve said: “R Charity is a cause that is very close to my heart as they helped me when I faced some serious health issues a few years ago. It was an honour to do the cycle for them and when I was struggling with tiredness, the motivation to hand the cheque over to them drove me over the line.
“Reaching Paris alongside my son was a moment I will remember for a very long time and I am sure that a similar charity event for 2018 will now be on the cards. I’d like to thank everybody that donated to our Just Giving page and supported our efforts along the way.”
