CYCLING enthusiasts will be taking part in an 800-mile relay bike ride in a bid to raise more than �100,000 for a children's charity.

Staff from Cash Generator in Town Square, Stevenage, will set off from their store at 5.30pm this afternoon (Monday) and cycle 25 miles as part of the South East leg of the challenge.

The Tour de Cash Generator, an event to mark the opening of the company's 100th store, will see company staff from across the UK taking part in the five-day national challenge, in a bid to raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation UK.

The charity aims to grant wishes to children and young people aged between three and 17 who have been affected by life-threatening illness.

Graeme Mulheron, Stevenage Cash Generator franchisee, said: "As a team, we feel it's important to do as much as we can for good causes.

"We've been putting in the training and hope the community will support us in helping us raise as much as possible for Make-A-Wish."
