THE managers of two car dealerships raised £4,500 for charity on a 1,600 mile motorbike ride from Dover to Monaco.

Chief executive Stuart Kerr and colleagues Shaun Allen and Jon Harte work at Dagenham Motors in Chigwell Road, Woodford Green, and Eastern Avenue in Newbury Park.

They took four days to complete the ride joining 21 other riders who spent seven hours a day each in the saddle.

The men were raising money for BEN, a charity which provides support for families in the motor industry who need help in times of hardship or distress.
