A Suffolk business owner has raised £5,000 for St Elizabeth Hospice by cycling from London to Paris.

Daniel Barr, owner of kitchen, bathroom and interiors specialist Anglia Factors, was accompanied by his son Alex and a team of other Suffolk riders for the 300-mile journey, all raising money for the Ipswich-based charity which improves the lives of people with progressive illnesses.

Mr Barr said: “St Elizabeth Hospice does incredible work to improve the lives of seriously ill people and their families.

“We were very happy to take the opportunity to undertake a father-son challenge to raise money for them.

“I’d very much like to thank everyone who has sponsored us on this challenge helping us to raise a fair amount for this great cause.”
