OXFAM supporters, staff and volunteers cycled from Burnham to Exmouth in a gruelling journey to raise funds for the charity's Burma appeal.

Seven cyclists tackled the 85-mile journey for the Myanmar Cyclone Appeal - setting off from Burnham and finishing at Exmouth, on the south coast.

Mike McGuffie, from the Oxfam group, told the Weekly News: "We in the South-West are very fortunate to live in such a wealthy and safe part of the world but it is important to remember that many other people are not so lucky.

"We hope our ride will highlight this and raise funds to help people in less fortunate countries.

"People can help by donating goods or money at their local Oxfam shop."
