Cash doubled in Kinikki charity ride

The family of an Exmouth serviceman killed in Afghanistan last summer have doubled their fundraising target just days after completing a charity bike ride in his honour.

Six family and friends of Senior Aircraftman Kinikki ‘Griff’ Griffiths, from the RAF Regiment, killed just a month before his 21st birthday, have so far raised �1,020 online.

It follows the completion of their 100-mile charity cycle trek on Sunday.

Dad, Nik Griffiths, his sister, Bianca-Jade Griffiths, Kinikki’s girlfriend Chloe Gunn, her dad, Graham, Phil Barnes and Alan Swanton cycled from the war memorial in Totton, near Southampton, where the family originate, to Exmouth war memorial.

They had hoped to raise at least �500 towards Kinikki’s chosen charity, Help for Heroes, formed to help those who have been wounded in Britain’s current conflicts.
