Skipton Building Society’s Colne branch used some serious pedal power as they geared up for this year’s Sport Relief weekend.

Staff held events at the Albert Road branch including “The Great Sport Relief Bake Off” and “The Great Sport Relief Burn Off”, where employees cycled more than 20 miles on an exercise bike, as they raised more than £2,500 for the appeal.

Branch manager Deborah Spier said: “Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change live and, since 2002, has raised over £195million.

“The money is spent by Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world.

“The public also plays a massive part in raising funds for Sport Relief and customers at the Colne branch came along to join in the fun.

“We are proud to be fund-raising for Sport Relief.”
