Staff at a Stratford supermarket have cycled from London to Brighton for charity – without moving an inch.
The static bike ride at Morrisons, The Grove, saw a team of employees pedal 54 miles over two days, replicating the iconic cycle race by creating a beach theme.
Raffles, face painting and a guess the number of pebbles in the jar competition were also held at the weekend to help raise even more money.
Their efforts helped to raise £450 for Sue Ryder, which provides hospice care and support to patients and their families.
The store’s community champion Pat Moyle said: “The seaside-themed static cycle ride was a lot of fun and we’re delighted to have raised such a fantastic amount.

“As always, our customers were extremely generous.”
The static ride was done in support of colleagues who will take on the challenge for real in September.
