A Kings Langley resident has recently embarked on a cycle ride and raised nearly £1,500 for Christian Aid.
On Monday, October 12 Paul Tucker cycled the 35-mile journey from Kings Langley to Regents Park and back again, cycling a total of 55 miles in one day.
Paul Tucker, chairman of Christian Aid Kings Langley, said that he decided to raise money for the charity, after charities across the country have struggled in recent months.
He said: “In terms of choosing the organisation, it was part of an autumn appeal to raise funds for those in the developing world.
“It has been a difficult year for charities. It was great to do something like this and with a friend to raise some money.”
Paul was accompanied on his journey by his friend and keen cyclist Paul Hutchinson and together they navigated the route to and from London.
So far over £1,300 has been raised with the help of Paul’s friends and family, as well as members of the local community.
Paul added that he wanted to thank everyone who has donated so far.
He said: “I wanted to share how touched I have been by people’s generosity, people have been so incredibly generous and supportive.”
