FUNDRAISERS who dressed up as comedy Frenchmen for a tandem cycle to Sidmouth have raised more than £4,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Taxi-driver Tony Quinn and his intrepid team pedalled their way across East Devon in the Gallic gear at the end of last year.

Tony, of Exmouth, and friends Les Carde, Phil Lea and Gary Miller raised £1,100 through a JustGiving page and a further £3,285 through cash and cheque donations.

They thanked all those who contributed.
