A manager at Swindon Aldi cycled all the way from London to Paris for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Steve Winwood, a logistics manager at the firm’s regional distribution centre, rode more than 300 miles and raised over £3,750.

He completed the distance in just four days.

Steve said: “Cycling into Paris knowing that we’d raised thousands for such a worthy cause was an amazing feeling. I’d been training hard for months, and that moment made it all worth it.

“The Teenage Cancer Trust makes a huge impact on the lives of young people after they have been diagnosed with cancer, and I hope that the money raised will enable the charity to reach more people.”

Steve is due to celebrate 27 years working at Aldi in September and his efforts are part of the supermarket’s commitment to raise more than £5 million for the charity.

Aldi has been supporting Teenage Cancer Trust since January 2017, and hit the £3m national fundraising milestone earlier this year.

Regional managing director for Aldi UK John Richardson said: “To cycle from London to Paris in just four days is an incredible achievement.

“We hope that Steve’s efforts will inspire other colleagues to take on new challenges for Teenage Cancer Trust.”

“Steve is a valued member of the team, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank him for his hard work and commitment over 27 years.”
