Charitable staff from a Skegness building society recently helped raise nearly £4,400 for the homeless by taking part in a five day sponsored cycling relay.

Liam Harrison, branch manager at The Nottingham in Skegness, was one of 29 cyclists, who together covered more than 240 miles around the East Midlands in aid of the charity Framework.

“It was great fun to be part of this event and I am very proud that everybody took park,” he said.

“The money raised will go towards the invaluable support that Framework provide right across the East Midlands.”

Spurred on by professional cyclists from Team Raleigh, Mr Harrison was joined by fellow workers at The Nottingham, including its chief executive, David Marlow, and other staff from Harrison Murray, the estate agency.

Framework chief executive Andrew Redfern has thanked the riders and Team Raleigh for their efforts in raising such a substantial total.

“This kind of high-profile public fundraising really does help us to change the lives of homeless and vulnerable people in the communities we serve,” he added.

Over the five days, the relay route visited Worksop, Retford, Brigg, Cleethorpes, Skegness, Grantham, Northampton, Market Harborough, Leicester, Shepshed, Loughborough and Ruddington before finishing in Nottingham.
