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."
