A St Albans businessman has been recognised for his hard work and dedication after recently completing an arduous 1,000 mile challenge to raise £90,000 for national children’s charity, Dreams Come True.
Paul Graham, finance director of Capital Cash Ltd, collected an award for outstanding achievement at the recent Cash Converters franchise awards ceremony in Cheshire.
Paul took on the famous cycle challenge stretching from the most south-westerly point of England, Land’s End, at the end of the Penrith Peninsula, to the most extreme northerly point of Scotland, John O’Groats, in a bid to raise money for the charity.
He was also joined by his managing director Carl Murray and Richard Addison, franchisee of Cash Converters in Rhyl.
Paul said: “We are really proud to have raised such a fantastic amount for Dreams Come True.

“The £90,000 we raised will go towards creating dreams for children who are seriously or terminally ill, whether that is a life-changing piece of specialised equipment or an amazing holiday or event.
“Being recognised for the achievement at the national Cash Converters awards is the cherry on the top and I’m pleased to also share this title with my colleagues Carl and Richard who joined me on this journey.”
