Burnham trio's pedal power raises £10,000 for charity

Three Burnham-On-Sea cyclists who hope to have raised more than £10,000 for charity by cycling to France have returned to the town this week.

Bobby Hanscombe, Judy Salisbury and Pam WhiteheadBobby Hanscombe, Judy Salisbury and Pam Whitehead, pictured, rode more than 280 miles over four days.

They began in Greenwich and then pedalled their way to the French capital via Dover during the sponsored Poppy Appeal ride.

The trio were back in Burnham this week and performed a special lap of honour around the parade ground during Sunday's event to mark the 60th anniversaries of VE/VJ-Day and the 65th anniversary of the Battle Of Britain.

Judy told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It was a superb experience - great fun. Once you ride through the initial pain, you forget about it after a while!"
