AFTER a gruelling 100-mile kayak trip three men carrying paddles raised £3,000 for charity.
Raising funds for the Garden House Hospice in Letchworth, Tom Ivey of Abington Piggots, and brothers Julian and Joel Butt of Radwell, kayaked from Kingston-upon-Thames to Oxford.
The challenge lasted eight days.
Tom said: "The first two days were very tiring and it was quite tough. However, we actually made good time so found the last couple of days fairly easy going.
