Staff from Specsavers Worthing have raised more than £1,500 for charity after pushing themselves to the physical limit in a cycle marathon.

Cycling and cakes for donations

Specsavers, located on Montague Street, hosted a fundraising day for Rockinghorse Children’s Charity and BBC Children in Need. Staff took turns to cycle as far as they could on exercise bikes in store and a range of baked sweet treats were on offer to encourage donations from the community.

Specsavers Worthing store director, Jasvinder Sarao says: ‘We had a target to cycle a total of 200 miles but managed to beat this and hit 238 miles instead!

‘It was wonderful seeing all of the staff get involved and it created a real buzz in store. Rockinghorse and Children in Need do a tremendous amount of work supporting disabled children and those with life-threatening conditions, so it’s vital we continue to support them. We’d like to thank everyone for all of their support and donations.’
