MORRISONS staff from Harwich are set to take on a gruelling bike race to raise cash for charity.

Steve Woods, night crew man, and store manager Darren Broadway are taking on the London to Brighton Cycle race this weekend for Sue Ryder.

The pair have spent many hours preparing for the 54 mile challenge over the last two months.

So far fundraising events have raised £3,500.

The Morrison's London to Brighton Cycle Team consists of 170 riders, from stores across the country, working towards raising over £100,000 for their charity of the year Sue Ryder.
