SUPERMARKET staff have spent the day cycling hundreds of miles in aid of Sport Relief.

An exercise bike has been at the front of the Sainsbury’s store in Farlington all day as 60 colleagues attempt to cover the distance of Lands End to John O’Groats.

Store trainer Stuart McKinlay said his legs ‘were like jelly’ after cycling nearly eight miles this morning.

Mr McKinlay, from Hayling Island, said: ‘It’s the hardest exercise I have had since last year. I’m not put off though, I’ll be offering my services again this weekend if anybody drops out.’

The bike will be at the supermarket until the colleagues hit their 740 mile target, estimated to be tomorrow night.

PR Ambassador from the store, Amanda Osman, said: ‘We have already collected more than £500, it’s been really good. The customers are finding it funny as we all have our sports gear and tutus on. Hopefully we shall raise much more this weekend.’

The store also joined in a flashmob dance at 11am and welcomed Steve Bennett, the assistant manager from Broadcut Sainsbury’s, this afternoon as he run past as part of his half marathon attempt.
