TWO cyclists from South Somerset have helped a South-West charity after raising £1,000.

David Mussell from Seavington and Martin Hudson from Chard handed over the cheque to Children’s Hospice South West’s Charlton Farm Hospice.

They took part in the Devon Coast to Coast ride from Ilfracombe to Plymouth to raise the money with the help of support team Marilyn Mussell and Caroline Dowell.

Martin’s 60th birthday champagne was used to celebrate the finish of the 93-mile ride.

The team said they were grateful to everyone who supported and sponsored them.

Martin added that he has plans for an event in 2015
