EMPLOYEES at a Sedgemoor motorway service area have raised hundreds of pounds for charity after cycling 45 miles as part of a cross-country relay.
The Roadchef team covered the distance on exercise bikes stationed outside the service area’s front entrance to raise cash for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
At the same time, colleagues at eight other Roadchef locations were making a similar journey, meaning that in total the staff journeyed the equivalent of 405 miles.
The Sedgemoor team managed to raise £680 for the organisation.
Jo Hancock, head of account management at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said “The event as a whole was a huge success and raised more than £5,000.
