Two vets have pedaled 284 miles from London to Paris in aid of The Royal British Legion, raising £2,000 in the process.

Robert Dawson and Richard Killen from Highcroft Veterinary Referrals in Bristol – part of the CVS Group – set off from Greenwich and finished on the Champs-Elysées to complete The Royal British Legion Pedal to Paris event in four days.

Determined to finish

Mr Killen said: “The route through the beautiful English and French countryside, and the feeling of camaraderie during the ride, were great.

“By the end, to say our legs were sore would be a serious understatement, but we were determined to finish and were delighted to do so.”

The money raised will help support The Royal British Legion’s work in the armed forces community.
