Pets at Home workers set to raise cash for three charities by cycling from Stoke-on-Trent to Paris
Eight workers from Pets at Home Distribution are part of a 10-strong team who will be cycling from Stoke-on-Trent to Paris in four days to raise funds for three charities.

The trip, which is almost 400 miles, is set to raise funds for Cancer Research UK, Beating Bowel Cancer and Support Adoption for Pets.

Team members Adam Watson and Benjamin Ainsworth were 'spinning' on their bikes outside the Cancer Research UK shop in Leek's Derby Street on to promote their trip and to add to the £2,000 they have already raised.

Pam McFadden, shop manager, said: "I think it's a really fantastic activity and we wish the boys every success."

Benjamin said: "It would be great if even more people could support us and donate to these very worthwhile causes."
