Worthing worker heads to the Continent for charity challenge

SIMON Atkinson is no stranger to charity challenges, but on Saturday (May 19) he will set off on his biggest yet.

The 38-year-old, who works at Dillistone Funeral Service in Worthing, is going to attempt to cycle 1,100 miles from France to Switzerland and back in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Simon, from Angmering, has previously done two large-scale charity events.
