John Bishop successfully cycled, rowed and ran from Paris to London in five days raising nearly £1.7 million to date, for the Sport Relief campaign. Bishop is hoping that the money will not only pay for a vaccine against five deadly diseases for children in Africa, but also to help people living incredibly tough lives in the UK.
