A surprise visitor popped into M&S in Newborough during a Tour de Yorkshire themed fundraiser last week.

Brendan Sheerin, presenter of Channel 4’s Coach Trip, used to live in Scarborough and was happy to pose for a picture while visiting the town.

The event, which took place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, saw more than 20 members of staff take turns to cycle the length of the Tour de Yorkshire route - four times over - on exercise bikes.

Staff also held a bake sale, raising over £1,400 for the Alzehimer’s Society, which is the store’s charity of the year. Store manager Nick Dent, pictured second from right with Brendan and staff members, said: “We were delighted with the result. We want to raise £8,000 this year.”
