Hugh O’Neill, owner of Recognition Express Bromley and Dartford, donated personalised vests to Brooke Kinsella, singer Lemar and Strictly Come Dancing winner Louisa Lytton, to wear when whey cycled 200 miles from Paris to London this month.

They were raising money for the Ben Kinsella Trust, set up by Brooke after her brother was stabbed to death in 2008, which aims to save lives by educating youngsters against the dangers of carrying knives.

Hugh said: “Our business specialises in producing branded promotional goods and clothing so it made sense and was easy for me to support Brooke and her friends this way. They’ve been training hard for such a good cause it was the least I could do to help.”

Brooke tweeted her support before undertaking the challenge, saying: “On your marks, get set, here we go! I’m ready! Thank you so much Recognition Express.”

Hugh has been an ongoing supporter of the charity and previously donated personalised hoodies and t-shirts to Brooke and her sisters when they walked to the highest point of Machu Pichu last year.
