Knoll garden centre's pedal power helps Children In Need
at Sanders Garden World in Brent Knoll raised nearly
£200 for Children in Need by holding a sponsored exercise
bike cycling event.
Thirteen members of staff rode 105 miles during the course of
a day during the static cycle ride at the garden centre.
General Manager Peter Burks told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The
fundraising idea was suggested by Paul Smith, who is a kitchen
assistant from our restaurant, and was organised by our Till Operator,
"The bike was provided by Esporta in Weston and thanks to
sponsorship from colleagues and customers, we have so far raised
£187.33 and are still collecting money."
Peter added: "They rode non-stop for eight hours in half
hour stints and covered on average 13 miles per hour. I would
like to congratulate everyone who was involved and took part."
