A WOMAN from West Quantoxhead raised £5,770 for Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton after riding from London to Paris.

Penny Gibbons took three days to complete the journey, which was in memory of the late Henry Bissell, who was friends with one of Penny’s daughters.

Paul Thorpe, consultant spinal surgeon at Musgrove, said: “We’re very grateful for this donation which will go on equipment, training and research projects.”
