John Cleese and The Motcomb Street Traders Association share charitable credits

A mother and son have cycled from London to Paris to raise cash for charity.

Chantal Coady, who owns Motcomb Street chocolate shop Rococo, and her son Fergus, 14, biked the 250-mile journey in four days.

The pair raised almost £3,000 for charity Build Africa, which helps communities build schools for children and to create small business initiatives for women. It also works to prevent HIV infection.

The Coadys held a small drinks party at Rococo before setting off, and were thrilled where Fawlty Towers funny man John Cleese dropped by the shop unannounced and donated £60 towards the cause. The Motcomb Street Traders Association generously gave a further £300.

Ms Coady said completing the ride was a “real challenge” but one which gave her “a huge feeling of elation”.
