TWO Solihull News reporters are taking on the challenge of a 277 mile bike ride for a local charity.

Annette Belcher and Hannah Jennings-Parry have pledged to collectively cycle the distance from London to Paris on a static bike based at the paper’s HQ.

The money raised will go to Mad Hatters Tea Party- a charity which provides fun days out for seriously ill and disabled children as well as equipment like wheelchairs to improve the youngsters’ quality of life.

“I’ve never done this before,” admitted Annette. “I’m scared stiff but looking forward to the challenge of raising money for a worthy cause.”

Hannah added: “I’m excited to take on this challenge. Hopefully it will boost not only Mad Hatters’ coffers and awareness but our fitness too.”
