STAFF at a supermarket in Stamford have used pedal power to raise money for a good cause.
More than 40 members of staff at Waitrose, in West Street, completed a 100 mile static cycle ride in store on Friday to raise more than £620 for Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, in Peterborough.
Each member of staff took it in turns to cycle for five or 10 minutes shifts on the exercise bike, while hospice fundraiser Alison Toomey held a bucket collection for customers.
Assistant section manager Simon Smith cycled for an hour and raised £200 in sponsorship.
Store personnel manager Rachel Mallia said: “It’s the first time we’ve done anything like this and it was fantastic. The customers were very generous in donating and the staff were great. We had some strange looks but it’s all been for a very good cause so all worthwhile.”
