Virtual London-Paris trek raises £75k for charity Astriid

An army of supporters virtually swam, cycled, walked and ran the distance from London Bridge to the Eiffel Tower in Paris to raise over £75k for former Recruiter charity of the year Astriid.

Astriid supports people with long-term health issues and their caregivers to find meaningful work, aided by its professional matchmaking platform.

Fifty-two teams took part, including people from across the UK, Europe, North America, South America and Asia. Each team covered an individual distance of 196 miles in five days to help Astriid smash its £25k target by 200%.
