The manager of an Exmouth charity shop is to cycle from London to Paris to help young cancer patients.

Sam Pratt, who works at the CLIC Sargent shop in the Strand, hopes the 250 mile ride will raise £2,000.

Sam, who will turn 50 shortly before the ride in September, has a personal reason for supporting the charity.

She said: “This charity supported me when my daughter was diagnosed with cancer aged two. Thankfully, she is now 26, healthy and well.

“I think I chose London to Paris because it was such a challenge, and I don’t do things by half.

“Training started in January. I could only do 10 miles then, now I am up to 50 and training two to three times a week.

“I also started to go out with a group from Exmouth Cycles who have been absolutely brilliant.”
