Employees of a North-east supermarket have managed to raise nearly £1,600 for charity after cycling 412 miles (664km).
Morrisons store colleagues in Peterhead launched a brand new fundraising drive for children and young people’s cancer support charity CLIC Sargent by undertaking the gruelling static bike ride.
Earlier this month, the Peterhead store team alongside their families and friends, plus volunteers from The Princes Trust, pedalled long and hard and raised £1,591.25 in donations from kind-hearted customers.
Sheena Irvine, community champion at Morrisons Peterhead, said: “We’re so proud to have raised so much money already for our new charity partner CLIC Sargent and I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who cycled and donated.
“Our customers, as always, were incredibly generous.
“It’s a great feeling to know that what we’ve done will make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people facing cancer.”
Fern McDonald, fundraising manager at CLIC Sargent, said: “Thanks to Morrisons and the efforts of the wonderful team at Peterhead, we’ll be able to stop cancer destroying more young lives than ever.”
