Staff at Morrisons supermarket in Banbury donned their shorts and sandals as they took part in a static bike ride for Sue Ryder.

The three-day event was held in Swan Close Road and staff dressed up in a seaside theme based on the London2Brighton Cycle Ride on September 6.

Altogether staff cycled an incredible 1,246 miles, raising £2,295 for charity. The weekend even saw store manager Sarah Ross put in the stocks and had two cream cakes thrown at her for a £50 donation.

Emma Boiselle, community champion, said: “It went really well and it was a really good day. We came second in the region and in the UK for how far we cycled and also had customers and other groups in the town helping out on the day.

“It is really important to raise awareness not only for Sue Ryder but to raise money to help them continue their work.”

Staff from Energie Gym in Grimsbury also helped out on the day by donating two bikes over the three days, and the Sea Cadets also played their part in raising much needed funds for a worthy cause.
