A GROUP of Scarborough bankers swapped the counter for the saddle as they took part in a sponsored cycle for charity.
Staff at HSBC in St Nicholas Street took part in a fundraising day, and raised £198 in aid of Sunshine Children’s Hospice.
The cause is the bank’s regional charity, and Scarborough’s HSBC staff have been raising money for it all year.
In their latest efforts the team dressed up in costumes, donated by QDOS Entertainment, and took part in a cycle challenge on an exercise bike in the branch.
There was also a cake stall and refreshments to help bring in funds.
Branch service and sales manager Sandra Sharp said: “The fundraiser went really well. A lot of effort was put in to the day and I am really proud of the staff for continuing their fundraising efforts and supporting this worth while cause.
“Thanks also to all the customers who made donations on the day and helped us raise nearly £200.”
