A PAIR of brothers, one from St Albans, the other from Paris, will bridge the gap this Easter with a charity cycle ride to the Eiffel Tower.

Craig Cox, 30, who lives in Lattimore Road, and his older brother Darren, 35, have organised a sponsored bicycle ride for the Easter weekend in memory of their father Bruce Cox, who died suddenly aged 61 last June from pancreatic cancer.

The Cox brothers, who will be joined by another 11 family members and friends, will be pedalling from the Tower of London to the Eiffel Tower - a distance of over 200 miles - to raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Craig, whose employer Williams F1 racing team are donating a raffle prize for the cause, said that they chose the Foundation because Bruce, who was diagnosed with cancer less than six weeks before his death, felt for the young patients with terminal illnesses on other wards.

He added: "My father felt thankful that even though he was young himself, he had been lucky to have a long and fulfilled life in comparison. We know that he would have liked to help some of those children during the difficult time they face."

Craig and Darren are hoping to raise �6,000 in total and to help them reach their target and be in with a chance of winning family race day vouchers, donate online at www.justgiving.com/brucecox. Be sure to leave your contact details so Craig can contact you should you win the raffle.
