FOR Father Christmas to get from the North Pole to England he has to travel more than 2,500 miles.
But the Tesco superstore, in Fareham, hopes to cycle that distance in aid of charity.
Staff from across the country are jumping on their exercise bikes to see if they can cycle the distance to the North Pole between them to raise money for Diabetes UK.
Coral Humphreys, a customer service assistant, said it had been difficult.
‘Some of our guys have sweated it out,’ she said.
‘The reaction from the customers has been positive. They like to see us actually doing something.’
Teams of two will be cycling for 30 minute shifts from yesterday morning this evening.
