MORRISONS in Burnham will join in the supermarket chain’s ‘Round the World Cycle Challenge’ this weekend with a goal to cycle the 24,902-miles, the circumference of the globe.
The store will pedal its 223-mile section of the challenge on a static bike in just 48 hours this weekend. They will represent France in the global theme, with French food stalls, fancy dress and cakes on offer to help generate donations.
Store general manager Steve Concannon said: “We call on all cycling fanatics to come down to the store, cheer on our colleagues and dig deep into their pockets. Together we will raise significant funds for Sue Ryder’s vital community care and support in our area.”
The money will enable Sue Ryder, the retailer’s nationwide charity partner, to establish new community services, family support teams and an online support community across the UK, including in the South- West.
Samantha Steadman of Sue Ryder said: “We are very grateful for the support of Morrisons colleagues and customers. The money raised will support vital Sue Ryder healthcare services which will make a huge difference to thousands of families at the most difficult time of their lives.”
