James Jarvis, from Richmond, has completed a spectacular tower to tower tour from London’s Crystal Palace Tower to Paris’ Eiffel Tower in just three days. The grueling 320 mile cycle was undertaken to raise funds for Starlight Children’s Foundation, the UK’s leading wish granting charity for children with serious and terminal illnesses, and Teenage Cancer Trust.
The team had been training hard for three months in order to be in peak condition for the cycle, but one of James’ teammates, Jim Rudall, was broke his leg and had to pack his training into an astounding four weeks, yet still managed to complete the challenge with his team.

Starlight grants a once-in-a-lifetime wish for seriously and terminally ill children, restoring the magic and fun of childhood and giving the whole family happy memories to share, whatever the future holds.
Starlight also creates entertainment in every hospital and hospice throughout the UK. Sick children go to Starlight parties, laugh their way through pantomimes, go out on Starlight Escapes, play games and watch films on the Starlight Fun Centre, and enjoy the toys and puzzles of the Starlight Distraction Box. Happy children respond better to treatment and Starlight helps children to forget about their illness and simply have a bit of fun.
