A Burnham-On-Sea holiday park owner has completed a fundraising ride to Paris, France to raise funds for charity.
Gary Bowden, Co-Owner of Dulhorn Farm Holiday Park, has raised £1,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
Gary has already previously completed several fundraising challenges this year, including a 60-mile Ultra Marathon Scotland in April, and the 3 Peaks Challenge in July.
“I cycled to Paris from Bristol over four days covering around 70-75 miles each day in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Trust,” he told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
“We were very fortunate with the weather, with three lovely days of glorious sunshine. The journey was hard but extremely enjoyable, knowing that were raising so much for such a worthwhile cause.”
“We raised in excess of £30,000 collectively in the group I was cycling with – and I have personally raised in excess of £1,000. This will assist the Cystic Fibrosis Trust in the amazing work they do. A huge thank you goes to all who have supported myself and the team.”
He added: “The reason I have been inspired by the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust is that Taylor, the son of my friend Adam Lane, was born with CF in 2014 and although he’s currently in good health, this has not always been the case.”
“I have learnt a huge amount about the genetic condition and the trust’s fantastic work. I am supporting them by raising vital funds, enabling them to continue their work into extending lives and hopefully, one day finding a cure.”
“I have been covering an increasing amount of distance every week to prepare for the long days in the saddle.”
