PUB-GOERS who pedalled 127 miles on a stationary bicycle have raised hundreds of pounds for a worthy cause.
Staff and regulars at The Festing pub, in Festing Road, Southsea, pedalled on a bike in the bar for 13 hours non-stop.
The efforts of pub landlord Matt Chapman, barman Albert Collis and regular Luke Threadingham helped to pull in £517 for Tom Prince Cancer Trust.
The trio, who began their challenge at 11am on the day, took it in turns by doing an hour at a time.
The pub has now raised almost £10,000 for the charity in a year.
Matt said: ‘I’m absolutely delighted with the amount of money we’ve been able to raise.
‘It was a surprise because the cycle challenge wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. Everyone was behind us and people were extremely generous with their donations – which was great.
‘A lot of people in the pub knew Tom so they are keen for me to keep doing fundraising events for the charity.’
