Managing Director of Hoburne Holiday Parks, James Lapage, has completed a 350-mile cycle ride around all seven Hoburne parks to celebrate the company’s centenary.

He left Hoburne Doublebois in Cornwall last Wednesday (May 2) and arrived at Hoburne Park in Christchurch, Dorset, yesterday (Monday May 7), raising a massive £8,000 for children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.

James and his sister, Sue Marchant, who lives in Newbury, crossed the finish line 100 years to the day that the Hoburne story began. The current Chairman’s great-grandfather John Burry bought ‘Hubborn Farm’ at auction on May 7 1912 and this is where Hoburne Park in Christchurch stands today.

As part of its 100th birthday celebrations, Hoburne has pledged to raise £100,000 for CLIC Sargent.

Events took place across the parks over the weekend, including the giant ‘Sammy Wiggle’ at Hoburne Park and a balloon race from Hoburne Naish in New Milton, which saw more than 300 multi-coloured balloons released into the sky.
