Black and White presents over £50,000 to children's charity

One of the country’s fastest growing hospitality businesses and whose main partner is Marco Pierre White, presented a cheque worth over £53,000 to Action Medical Research for Children.

The money was raised by a team from Black & White Hospitality following a marathon 320 mile London to Paris bike ride in July.

Headed by Nick Taplin, chairman of Black & White Hospitality, the 35-strong team included co-owner Caroline Wilce and director Shezan Aslam.

Accepting the cheque on behalf of the charity was Emma Morgan, Head of Events, who said: “On behalf of Action Medical Research I would just like to thank everyone at ‘Black and White Hospitality’ for their support, dedication and amazing fundraising achievements!

“The challenge of cycling 320 miles is itself an incredible accomplishment, but we also know how much effort goes into training and preparing yourselves in the weeks and months leading up to the ride itself.

“Unlike some research charities we rely almost entirely on donations and can only fund new medical breakthroughs with this type of support. Black and White’s generosity and effort helps make a difference for sick and vulnerable babies, children affected by disabilities and those with infections and rare diseases.

‘Thank you for doing so much to help save and change children’s lives.’

The ride was organised by Discover Adventure and set off from Crystal Palace on Wednesday 19 July where the team made its way through Kent towards Dover.

After a ferry trip they then stayed in Calais before heading down to Arras on day two. Day three saw the team ride through the Somme towards Compiegne and included a visit to the World War One memorial at Thiepval.

The team were then up early to ride into the French capital on Saturday 22 July, passing the Arc de Triomphe, down the Champs Elysee and finishing by the iconic Eiffel Tower.
