Hundreds of pounds were raised by Virgin Active staff at a charity cycle for Sport Relief in Wimbledon.

A team of 14 people were able to cover the 283.5 miles equivalent distance from London to Paris, all without leaving Centre Court shopping centre on Saturday, March 22.

Cyclists took it in turns to clock up the total, raising about £400.

Kirsty O'Grady, sales manager of the Worple Road, Wimbledon branch, said: "It went really well.

"We enjoyed doing the event and people were interested in what we were doing.

"It was a lot of pedalling."

Staff from three branches - Worple Road, Battle Close and Merton Abbey - combined forces for the charity event.
