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.
"But it was worth doing because we have raised a lot of money for a very deserving charity."
The trio decided to raise money for the Garden House Hospice after a friend had been in their care.

"It's a charity that is extremely close to our hearts," said Tom.
"We're definitely going to do something like this again, and we're looking at a number of locations, possibly somewhere in Scotland, or maybe across the Channel."
