A Woodford Green businessowner is taking on a 55-mile bike ride, three half marathons, a skydive and a treasure hunt to raise funds for Haven House Children’s Hospice.

Dan Lion and his team at Holiday Designers hope to raise £1,000 for the charity by committing to a number of fundraising activities.

Dan said: "We operate an established and successful independent travel business locally and feel it's important to give something back to the community.
