From London to Paris for dad's memory
6:00pm Monday 9th June 2014 in News
FUNDRAISING siblings have topped £13,000 for a hospice that helped support their dad through his battle with cancer.
Darren King, from Dovercourt, and Suzanne Seamen-King have been raising money St Helena Hospice after losing their dad, Jonathon, to the disease last July.
The 68-year-old died peacefully in hospital four months after giving his daughter away at her wedding.
After holding quizzes, a car wash, afternoon tea and a 300 mile bike ride from London to Paris, the duo have smashed their target of £10,000 and hope now to reach £15,000.
Darren and Suzanne were joined by nine friends for their big bike ride, which saw them cycle for four days before arriving at the Eiffel Tower in Paris where they were met by 30 friends and family.
