Students raise £3000 for charity with London to Paris cycle

Students studying the CYQ Level 3 Personal Training and Development, Coaching and Fitness cycled 280 miles from London to Paris for Help for Heroes and In Charley’s Memory.

The students battled through and made it to the Eiffel Tower where the sun was shining! Students cycled from London to Calais, to Boulogne-sur-Mer to Abbeville, to their final destination of Paris.

The students had fundraised by taking part in 12 hour spins at local supermarkets, leg waxing and via family and friends. After the bike ride was complete, the students visited Disneyland Paris and then got to board a sightseeing boat for a cruise down the River Seine observing the Notre Dame.

Student Alex Male said,

“It was such a good experience and would definitely do it again. It was amazing.”

Melissa Storey said,

“It was a once in a lifetime experience and I would love to have the opportunity to do it again.”

Nyree Davies, Programme Manager said,

“This was an excellent opportunity for students to continue to develop their personal leadership and teamwork skills. I am incredibly proud of all their hard work as it was not only the physical challenge but the mental challenge they faced every day.”
