Turf Care Systems saleswoman pedals to Paris for breast cancer charity

Mandy Caton has raised more than £4,000 for the charity Breast Cancer by completing a London to Paris cycle challenge.

The sales administrator at Campey Turf Care Systems covered 300 miles over four days and said she was swept along by the "amazing camaraderie" of the team of 93 riders.

"The group encouraged each other and we had a fantastic support team from Skyline, which was just as well - I had two punctures to contend with.

"The weather was dry but cold initially and the terrain was the most challenging on the first day, very hilly. The final two days were much easier, with long downhill runs.

"As we approached the Eiffel Tower the sun was shining and I felt a huge sense of achievement, knowing I'd been able to contribute to Breast Cancer."
