4:16pm Wednesday 18th June 2014 in News
BANKING staff used pedal power to back a Grand Depart £1 million fundraising bid.
The team at Barclays' Market Street branch in Bradford supported Marie Curie Cancer Care with a charity day.
Marie Curie is the official charity partner of the Grand Départ and is running the Grand Départy campaign.
Staff donned yellow Marie Curie t-shirts and kept a bike pedalling throughout the whole day whilst selling cakes.
The event, which was held on Friday, June 6, raised £390 for the hospice on Mausley Street.
Hospice community fundraiser Jen Aspinall said: "The enthusiasm of the staff for the day was fantastic. They all looked fantastic in their yellow t-shirts and we want to say a huge thank you to them all for taking part."
